Every summer, Pärnu turns into a real beach resort town that is always bustling with people, regardless of day or time. Thousands of people are attracted by the sandy beach, clear sea, busy event calendar, and pleasant restaurants, cafés, and bars. It’s no wonder that in the summer, there are six times more people in Pärnu than during other times of the year. Read on to see what places in Pärnu you should visit this summer to make the most of the season.
Supeluse Summer Promenade
Supeluse Street and its restaurants and cafes form the Supeluse Summer Promenade, which has become one of the symbols of Pärnu in the summertime. You can stroll from the city centre to the beach and back, and it's the setting of many summer street festivals. Due to the high number of pedestrians, Supeluse Street becomes car-free in the summer.
There are cafés, restaurants, and seating areas with pleasant atmospheres to suit all tastes. For example, at the beginning of Supeluse Street, there is a place called Poisi Eine where you can buy wraps, burgers and poke. Across the street is Oliver's Garden Café, which serves barbecue and has tables for larger groups. Families with children will especially enjoy this place, as Oliver's Garden Café has a large children's playground. Next to Oliver's Garden Café, is the soon-to-be-opened restaurant Miami, seating 180. Exactly when the restaurant will open remains a secret.
Continuing along Supeluse Street, you will find the Supelsaksad Café, which always serves delicious food. Directly across the road is Karusselli Buffet, one of the main evening gathering places. The Artists' House is also close by, where there is always something exciting going on.
Moving on from there, we arrive at Villa Wesset, which is always full of visitors in the summer. Villa Wesset is a hotel with a restaurant that expands to the street during the summer season. At Villa Wesset you'll find high quality meals and great cocktails to enjoy during the long evenings.
Across the road from Villa Wesset is the large Pärnu Beach Park, the construction of which began in 1882. It's pleasant to walk here during daytime or in the evening. Delight in ancient avenues, admire the flowers and fountains, have a relaxed summer picnic, or meet the friendly grass-green elephants that have been brought here to delight visitors.
