The history of Pärnu dates back to 1251 when the Pärnu Cathedral of the Saare-Lääne diocese was built on the right bank of the river. A dozen years later, Uus-Pärnu (New Pärnu) was founded on the river's opposite bank. Uus-Pärnu later became the Hanseatic city, the university city, the birthplace of the Republic of Estonia and the first resort.
Discover the rich history of Pärnu with exciting stories and legends on a walk in the Old Town and visit the only surviving part of Pärnu's medieval city fortification - the Red Tower. There, you will have an opportunity to see a unique panoramic animated film " Merciless and Merciful History. In the Red Tower through 15,000 years".
NB! Important information: The Red Tower panoramic cinema session can accommodate up to 10 people at a time. Larger groups will be divided into smaller ones.
