Koidula park in the Pärnu centre is one of the most loved parks in the town, you can enjoy the beauty of flowers and the babbling of fountains. Lydia Koidula (1843-1886) was known poetess, publicist, and a social figure from the national awakening period, as well as the author of the first play in Estonian. Pärnu was the town of her youth. In 1925 it a decision to build a monument and park dedicated to her was made. The opening ceremony of the sculpture by Amandus Adamson was held in 1929. This is also the last work of the sculptor.
Lydia Koidula was a true Estonian poetess and this might be one of the reasons the statue is located in a beautiful park. Definitely worthwhile visiting and taking time to be there.
It is good place to visit this park with friends or children. I recommend to buy with you some donuts and juice close to this place (local people can help to find the right place ;-)).
Tired of walking around on a sunny day? Have a sit in this beautiful park on the square with the chilly fountain. Benches are in shadow and on the sun. Grab some snacks and drinks! ;)
