Greetings from Tartu in Estonia
Tartu is the second largest city of Estonia and it’s often considered the cultural centre of the country. That’s because of the University of Tartu, which is the oldest and the most renowned university in Estonia.
Tartu is such a charming, livable town…
With lots of colorful, wooden houses (don’t worry, I’ll write a separate post about it)…This is Emajõgi, which means “Mother River” in Estonian. You can go on quite a long, relaxing walk along the river…You’ll notice that there are some lovely cafés, and many comfortable benches too where you can sit down and contemplate the world around you…If you’re looking for a unique experience, you may choose to sail along the river on the barge “Jõmmu”, which was handmade according to the ancient techniques.

Tartu is a calm, but at the same time, there’s always something going on…I really like its creativity…Coffee lovers, this is a place to be! There are many great cafés to relax and enjoy your (good) coffee…And guess what – there’s a local beach where you can swim… Well, if it’s warm enough…This is Tigutorn (Snail tower) – a 23-storey tower building made of monolithic reinforced concrete. The lower floors are occupied by office rooms, and the upper floors are for apartments. You can’t miss it – it really dominates the town!But that’s not all! I have much more to tell you about Tartu…In my next post, of course!
