Great little family run restaurant which is currently closed but still open for hungry patrons. Very great hospitality!!!!! The grilled meat, sausages, freshly made salad and house wine were exquisite. Thanks very much.

Tori Mois In the Middle Ages, Tori (German: Torgel) was the main manor of the main administrative office of Pärnu. First mentioned in 1528. The Tory estate belonged to the state for many centuries. After the destruction of the Northern War in 1738, a small archaic wooden main building of the estate was erected. The main building is one of the oldest surviving wooden manor buildings in Estonia. It has been preserved almost in its original form, with the exception of a wing added to the rear in the 19th century and the distribution of window frames changed in the same century. In 1820, the Tori state estate was leased to the Knights of Livonia, who opened a stud farm here in 1854. In the 1850s, a powerful stable complex was built at Tory, whose historic, beautiful gate building dates from 1856. Tory became famous thanks to horse breeding and breeding of Tory horses. Horse breeding, developed in the State Estate, still exists today.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
