Monument to Pärnu Narrow Gauge Railway

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.

    Something special in the city center.

    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 !

    Free history

    If you happen to be near with kids, then the kids will most likely enjoy some climbing and will ask some questions about old train. There are no movable parts so expect that kids will lose interest...

    Kids like it

    This is a small locomotive with the sole distinction that kids like to climb it. Do not bother to go and see it unless you have kids.
