Historic downtown Pärnu is defined by its main pedestrian thoroughfare, Rüütli tänav (Knight Street). A new square called Rüütli plats will open by Midsummer 2018 at the Pärnu Hotell end of the street. The 400-metre stretch of the street between Ringi and Vee, and a few streets that branch off from here, are home to a hodge-podge of intriguing buildings dating from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Peek into the courtyard of Rüütli 21, where you will find one of Pärnu's oldest buildings, the Mohr Granary. At the other end of the street, you will see the Tallinn Gate.
