Like a small child who has many names, Pärnu is known by a number of them. It started its history as Bishop’s residents and knights fortress, later became trade center, followed by university city, developed into Royal resort and now known as official summer capital. One of the oldest traces of human activity originates from this area and we are also going to explore it during our visit to the Pärnu Museum.
Our trip to Pärnu also includes a visit to one of the largest hill forts built by ancient Estonians. Varbola now is a special place that still has traces of its former greatness.
We will also make a stop at one of the most fortified churches in Estonia, Märjamaa Church. Town around the church appeared in the 19th century and now is an interesting sample of life in a smaller town.
