In Pärnu's modern intercity bus terminal, you might accidentally run into a train! That's because on the 110th anniversary of the Pärnu-Valga narrow gauge railway, the first one in Estonia, it was decided that its historic location should be marked. In 2006, a steam locomotive built in 1911 by the O. & Koppel factory in Germany and a platform wagon built in 1913 by the Arthur Koppel company in St. Petersburg were placed at the location of the former passenger station in the centre of Pärnu.
We were just coming from our walk in the historical center of Parnu, when we suddenly saw this miracle. Our son was so happy he could climb in and explore everything.
Everybody knows how railway looks in real life, but opportunity to step in the narrow gauge railway and get the feeling by your own! It is nice!
Children like this monument ! Small part of Estonian railway history close to the main bus station. You must visit this place with your children, but be safe - road is very close !
