Everyone can feel great here because the beach and the river are always relaxing. In summer, the popular terrace of the pub offers beautiful views of the river and the yachts, the song of the wind in their sails adding some romance to the sunset. * Restaurant Kuursaal (Mere puiestee 22, Pärnu) with colourful history starting in 1893 when it became a popular beer drinking and entertainment venue.
