Tartu is a small gem located at a convenient distance from the main European hubs of connection. It is just the right size, charming and not too crowded, while offering plenty to see for a few days' visit. This year, Tartu together with Southern Estonia, will be the European Capital of Culture, so many other events will take place throughout the year. Find all information on cultural attractions, events and transportation on the website of Visit Tartu.  


In Tartu you find yourself in a green city – parks spread out here, and the winding Emajõgi River beautifies every season throughout the town.

In autumn, it is relaxing to walk along the banks of the river and even swim at its beaches.wink

Tartu's old town offers delightful examples of architectural styles from the Middle Ages to modern contemporary architecture. Thanks to its universities, Tartu is known as a city of science, promoting science through museums and events to its residents and visitors.
