Spring Fever

Spring Fever

Ah, the smell of spring in the air! Longer days, more sunshine, and the anticipation of summer being just around the corner. Patios will be popping up and summer terraces opening all around town.

The real sign of Spring are the annual Tartu Student Days from 24-30 April. The university town of Tartu is taken over by students putting on entertaining cultural and sporting events, all mixed with a bit of humour and intellect. There are over 100 events taking place during this week-long festival, which culminates with Walpurgis Night (Volbriöö). It’s one of the most anticipated events of the among academic student organisations. The night kicks off with a greeting to the procession from the Mayor of Tartu and the Rector of the University of Tartu. Afterwards, each student organisation holds their respective private events that are filled with performances, concerts, beer tables, singing, and more. At midnight, they open their doors to other student corporations and societies. In other words, it’s one big party lasting early into the morning.

This month we’ve also got a guide to state forest trails (RMK), where you can explore Estonia’s beautiful forests and lakes. There are a tonne of new exhibitions opening in Tallinn this month, as well as where to get the best views of the city. And last but not least, we will tell you where to celebrate Easter in Estonia and Estonian Easter traditions.

Happy travels!
