Guided tour of the history of the Russian Empire in Pärnu


Two centuries of Russian rule had a great impact on Pärnu. Churches and stone moles appeared in the cityscape, which can still be admired in the city to this day. The fortress town became a resort with its own unique lifestyle and traditions. The people who contributed to science, jurisprudence, and jewellery making became the greatest value of the city.

We will discover these exciting stories together with guides Ljubov Petrova (Russian) and Veronika Meibaum (Estonian and English).

The tour lasts about 1.5 hours.
The tour can be ordered if there are at least seven people.
For smaller groups, please contact us.
