Pärnu

Architecture

03 May 2019
It seems that around just about every corner in Pärnu there’s another building that can inspire sincere ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs.’ In addition to the above mentioned Rannahoone, the Rannahotell (beach hotel) at Ranna pst. 5 stands out as another wonderful example of functionalism. Completed in 1937, it was designed by the same architect, Olav Siinmaa, who also had a hand in creating one of the most recognised symbols of the town - the neo-classicist Pärnu Mud Bath building which dates from 1926-27. Not far from here, at Mere pst. 7, is the early Jugendstil Ammende Villa, which was built in 1905 for a wealthy merchant. It’s now a hotel and restaurant, so you can easily sneak a peak at its fantastically restored interior or stroll around its well-tended garden.
