Poetic as it sounds, Parnu is the resort capital of Estonia, that is designed with the perfect balance of a European flair and the Baltic blues. The Nordic chime in this small coastal town flows through the streets, the cuisine, the weather and of course, the people. Parnu signs off with the St.Elizabeth’s Church, a Lutheran church built in 1747, that can be spotted from any corner of the city. The interior features a Gothic style wooden pulpit and the altarpiece from Rotterdam, dating from 1854 and the church itself is outlined by more rustic Nordic-European structures, that are both warm and colorful. St. Catherine’s Church is another must-see, a Russian Orthodox church built in a baroque style. For a warm experience, where the waters are welcoming and the colors of this city truly pop, June-August is the best time to visit. However, Parnu carries its old-world Nordic charm throughout the year and knows how to shine one way or the other! Here are some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals for a wonderful vacation!
If you are traveling with friends, this 1927, two-storage minimalistic wooden building with tinkler shaped roof could give you a comfortable and memorable experience that lets you backpack in luxury! Comes with a kitchen, WiFi, a terrace with a view and a cafeteria on the ground floor. The one available room has a bath and four beds and an outdoor garden to soak in the Parnu sun! The host also offers a tour of the city and bikes to strut the streets of this rustic town.
