Tartu

Tartu, as the oldest city in the Baltics, offers exciting sights every step of the way, especially in the city centre, which is a unique national heritage conservation area. Here you can find examples of styles from medieval times to present-day modern architecture that is complemented with cosy cafes and unique restaurants, urban nature and the lively buzz of the student city. Tartu is the cradle of Estonian culture – from here the national university originated, the first newspapers and cultural societies, the first traditional theatre (Vanemuine) in the year 1865 all began their work here, and in the year 1869, the first national song festival took place.
