Cute little house with great Estonian history

As a person who grew up with knowing who Lydia Koidula and Johann V. Jannsen are, it is truly great museum about their life, success and work. But who don't know them, you should visit it anyway...

Takes you truly back in time

When in Pärnu, then I truly suggest to find this perfectly sized museum. Not too small and definitely not too big, just perfect to take you on a short time travel journey:)
