A great article about the Estonian seaside resort, Parnu. ( I was just there recently and thoroughly enjoyed it!.)
When talking beach resort, most of us probably think Greece, Spain, Portugal. The Côte d’Azur. If you’re American, Florida or California. The islands of South-East Asia. The Caribbean.Australia.

If you’ve never heard of it before, don’t worry, you don’t need to sign up for a geography Master’s. You’re not alone: neither had I!
In fact, it’s not like I knew anything other than Tallinn when I first started researching for my trip in the Baltics… However, my cousin and I wanted to spend time in at least two different places in Estonia in order to see a little more of the country, and to break up our trip from Riga to Tallinn. So, I googled ‘Estonia highlights’ and ‘Things not to miss in Estonia’, and read about this little beach town called Pärnu that seemed to be located halfway between the two capitals and kept being referred to as ‘the summer capital of Estonia’.
