Winter fun in Tartu

Enjoy shopping, live music, and plenty of other activities indoors and out in this beautiful Estonian city.

 

Tartu’s history as a town dates back to the 13th century, but became known in 1632 with the establishment of the university. Since then, Tartu has become a student’s city, where 20,000 of the 100,000 inhabitants are students. Some of Tartu’s most well known landmarks include the Emajõgi River that flows through the centre of town, Toome Hill, the university’s main building with its distinguished columns, and of course the “kissing students” in the Town Hall Square fountain. Plan your trip by contacting the Tartu Visitor Centre in the Town Hall (info@ visittartu.com,+372 744 2111)
