Andres Tölp

MANAGER OF CULTURAL CLUB TEMPLE

Pärnu has its own lovely quirks!

I was born and raised in Pärnu and have lived here in two phases of my life – until my 20th birthday and then again from 2014 until now.

In Pärnu I am more involved in cultural management, more specifically in the management of the Culture Club Tempel. I do it because cultural management is my specialty and music is my biggest passion. For me, Pärnu County is primarily a home, but also a set of goals. I feel a certain sense of responsibility and mission to make life here better, more culturally enriched.

Regarding Pärnu County, I can state with absolute certainty that this is the best place to live and rest. My biggest determining factor in establishing a home in Pärnu County has been my work and that strong sense of mission. Pärnu has its own nice quirks, and the saying “it is better to be a big fish in a shallow pond than a small fish in a big one” certainly rings true here.

I was born in the idyllic city of Pärnu and have lived and flourished here all my life. For a while, I went and discovered the world, but still came back. Currently, I am honoured to be the marketing specialist at Pärnu Hospital, the largest employer in Pärnu County. Outside of work, I have dedicated my life to creating and nurturing my own lifestyle company – Positively Inspiring Lifestyle. I am a big dreamer and a profound lover of life, a treasurer of humanity and a connoisseur of simple things. Thanks to my work and hobbies, I am able to enjoy these things daily.

I love living in Pärnu County, but I am also fond of travelling. It is exciting to travel around the world, discover new qualities and skills in myself, be more open to everything and everyone and then apply it locally.

In Pärnu County, there is plenty of room for everything: living, working, enjoying, loving, losing, searching, finding, creating and developing. There is peace and quiet when you want it, and speed and stimuli when you need it. Our happiness and satisfaction stem from our own actions and attitudes. People are also warm, caring and helpful here – Pärnu County makes me feel right at home!

If you are attracted to spaces where you can be creative, to beautiful environment that inspires you to live in harmony with nature, if you relish entrepreneurship and the feeling that your activities really make a difference, then Pärnu County is just the place for that.

I was born in Tallinn, but my parents moved to Pärnu when I was little. That’s why Pärnu has been a home for me ever since I can remember. After high school, I lived in Germany for a couple of years, studying psychology, but when I returned home, it was clear that my heart still belonged to Pärnu County. I am and will remain a small town girl.

I came back to Pärnu in the spring of 2009 and since then have worked mainly as a psychologist and counsellor. Two years later, I and my partner here founded the Non-Profit-Association Pesapuu to help people who are stuck in their lives for some reason and need help solving problems and moving on.

We work at our association on a daily basis to ensure that members of the community are healthy and able to earn their livelihood. In the course of it we see what people are capable of when they decide to change their lives. I am extremely grateful that I have the honour of witnessing these changes, which also motivates our team to contribute willingly and wholeheartedly to bring this on.

Pärnu County is a place where all the different aspects I consider important to a good living environment are combined: a peaceful living environment that encourages entrepreneurship, good and reasonably sized schools for children and kindergartens – everything is close at hand. Diversity of nature and a range of cool events and entertainment is also a big plus.

Pärnu County is a place suitable for enterprising and brave people. There are many opportunities for those who want to grow, develop and try new things, and why not make good money. For me, Pärnu County has always been home. Other places did not even come to mind.

Pärnu County is a great place for people who love variety.

I spent my childhood in Tootsi – a small town in Pärnu County – and later moved to Pärnu when I went to study at Hansa Gymnasium. After graduating from high school I worked at Ammende Villa, but after a while life took me on a journey that ended up at the capital’s restaurant landscape in Tallinn. It was a truly exciting time – being the first female manager of the renowned Stenhus Restaurant was definitely the highlight of my career.

When I started my family, I came back to Pärnu County because the city of Pärnu seemed ideal for raising children. My husband is also from Pärnu County and as the surfing fervour has kept him strongly tied to Pärnu, we spent the weekends here anyway.

Pärnu is safe and sufficiently versatile, yet still small enough so you can cover distances quickly on a bike. We really enjoy spending time outdoors, which is also made possible by the abundance of local parks.

For those who love variety, Pärnu County is a great place to live and work at. During the summer, there is always something going on, while in the winter, it is nice to rest attuned to the rhythm of nature and eagerly anticipate the oncoming new season. It is possible to do great things here, as Pärnu’s small size facilitates getting the right people together and working faster.

My husband and I have both set up our own businesses in Pärnu. While organizing the Happy Children’s Festival, I have noticed that Pärnu’s inhabitants are proud of their inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit, and also appreciate quality, a healthy lifestyle and their green city.
