Pärnu is a city in south-western Estonia on the coast of Pärnu Bay, an inlet of the gulf of Riga in the Baltic Sea. It is a popular summer vacation resort with many hotels, restaurants and large beaches. The Pärnu river flows through the city.
Since 1996 Pärnu has been known as Estonia's Summer Capital.
Now this is interesting...its the second time that I come across a place which is called as the 'summer capital' of a country..first it was the Philippines, with the Baugio City...now this...i wonder how many other countries out there have cities which are called 'summer capitals'....we here, certainly dont :)
