Owner description: On Ruutli street situates the modern city sculpture perfect example - the life-size sculpture of Johann Voldemar Jannsen, the father of Estonian journalism. Hard hat in one hand and newspaper in the other he is like stopped for a moment to peek into today's Parnu Postimees office windows!Interesting to know!According to belief touching the page of Perno Postimees in Jannsen's hand will bring you good news this day!Monument created by professor Mati Karmin was ordered by Parnu Postimees for 150th birthday of newspaper Perno Postimees that first came out in 1857.

Located at city centre you walk many times next to this statue, take a foto with it or just look. I would not spend more than 15s with this "attraction" ;) Booooring...
