Attention! For booking a hotel for You, we need to know the dates of Your arrival and departure asap.

Pärnu is the summer capital of Estonia thanks to our famous beach and very warm sea water in July-August.

It creates problems for finding last-minute accommodation.

Please, send us Your travel itinerary asap!
