Nice Place
Sarah says 12 years ago
Tartu is a distinctly classical old town and is the centre of South Estonia and the country’s second-largest town. The University of Tartu was founded in 1632 and is also the birthplace of Estonian national literature and journalism.

Don’t miss the famous statue of kissing students in front of the Town Hall or Tartu’s “Tower of Pisa”, the leaning building of the art museum by the Town Hall Square. There's an English-style park located on the site of the former Estonian stronghold or one of the main landmarks of Tartu Toomemagi, known for its two bridges, the Devil’s Bridge and the Angel’s Bridge, the Observatory, and the ruins of Dome Church, which was the largest cathedral in Livonia when it was completed in the 15th century. At the foot of the hill you will find Wilde Pub with a cosy bookstore and the bronze figures of two prominent writers: Estonian Eduard Vilde and British-Irish Oscar Wilde.
