Koidula park in the Parnu centre is one of the most loved parks in the town, you can enjoy the beauty of flowers and the babbling of fountains. Lydia Koidula (1843-1886) was known poetess, publicist, and a social figure from the national awakening period, as well as the author of the first play in Estonian. Parnu was the town of her youth. In 1925 it a decision to build a monument and park dedicated to her was made. The opening ceremony of the sculpture by Amandus Adamson was held in 1929. This is also the last work of the sculptor.

Small quiet park with Lydia statue in the middle gives you a little break just to sit down and enjoy birds singing in the middle of olda town, after long ride between small shops and beer pubs :)

Lydia Koidula was a true Estonian poetess and this might be one of the reasons the statue is located in a beautiful park. Definitely worthwhile visiting and taking time to be there.

Tired of walking around on a sunny day? Have a sit in this beautiful park on the square with the chilly fountain. Benches are in shadow and on the sun. Grab some snacks and drinks! ;)
