It`s a nice idea to walk in the park and then unexpectedly meet him there, sitting and playing his immortal melodies. His soul is happy, he liked Pärnu. We happy while listening to his about love, no matter, that is 21st century. People love and fall in love, feelings are still there. Why not to stop and take some photos... More

Statue of Raimond plays accordion. Nice and unique idea. The statue is located in a park near Hedon spa hotel close to the Baltic Sea beach.

I was surprised to see this statue. Nice idea and best in it is the music, which is still playing. You can sit there for a second and just rest, even if you do not know Raimond Valgre :)

If you know the tunes you can sing yourself, the music is provided! A must place to have a photo. Easy to visit if just strolling in the area.

We were pretty surprised to find out that it's actually a sculpture that is making the sound. Day and night it plays his most loved tunes. It's not unpleasant and we even saw one granny sitting there listening... More
