The splendour of Haapsalu, the famous Czarist era resort, is recalled by the seafront Promenade and its jewel -- the Assembly Hall with its wooden “gingerbread”. Walk on the sloping promenade and glance dreamily at the sea; check the time at the sundial and have a rest on the bench named for the world-famous composer Tchaikovsky. Interesting facts: The Promenade starts at the exotically named Africa Beach, and ends at the Chocolate Promenade, which is named after a former café. There is a children’s playground on the Promenade and the town’s only observation tower. There is also a monument to Carl Hunnius, the discoverer of Haapsalu’s therapeutic mud behind the band shell.

Attended mid summer wedding of my cousin and the staff as well as the food and the facilities were fitting nicely with the theme. The unbelievable view outside towards the skyline.

Nice promenade with a view on the lake/sea. Went there in off-season so it was not really busy but still enjoyed it.

If the weather is nice, it will be beautiful. If not, it is still worth it. This is a beautiful promenade, with some old buildings from the turn of the century. Feel the atmosphere of a 100 years ago involve you!

Very well-planned, clean and charming promenade. Winds through some adjacent small parks and sculptures, with English and Estonian descriptions. I had a great run here one AM.

It was like in the beginning of the 20 century! Long promenade along the shore, well maintained park with the romantic white benches, and wooden architecture enlight your mood in sunny or gloomy days. There are cafes with fabulous view.

The Promenade is a must when you walk around the city. Here you can also sit at the Tsjaikovski bench at the Promenade.

So relaxing for a walk but didn't quite find where you can actually swim. Strange figures in water. I am sure it's an art but not my cup of tea. Enjoy the walk
