Abstract Sea Kayaking in Pärnu


Parnu Mud Baths

Description: Pärnu Mud Baths The neo-classicist building of the Mud Baths is one of the most important symbols of the Pärnu resort.

It was built in 1926-1927 in place of a bathing house that was burned down in World War I.

The history of the Pärnu Mud Baths, but also of the resort can however be tracked down to the year 1838 when the bathing house by the sea offered warm sea baths in the summer and hot sauna in the winter.

The resort started to develop rapidly in the 1890s.

In the Soviet era, the so-called temple of health started to serve the health of the working people; after Estonia’s independence, it became deserted and lost its function. Now, however, a new owner has been found and perhaps it will once again become one of the main symbols of the Pärnu resort!

Address: Ranna pst 1, Pärnu
