Tartu Town Hall Square, Tartu
Home to a neoclassical municipal building and much of the town's activity, Tartu Town Hall Square represents the historical heart of the city. Surrounded by classical houses and shops, the square plays home to a famous local statue depicting two love-struck students kissing atop a fountain. Wander the area and you'll find remnants of the bustling activity that once took place here, ranging from craft markets to the many cafes lining the plaza. Don't miss the so-called "leaning house" on one side of the square or listening in to the town hall's bells ringing through the air. Keep a close eye out and you'll be able to spot the Soviet hammer-and-sickle crest adorning some of the buildings, signs that these are actually post-World War II reconstructions rather than originals. With our custom trip planner, Tartu attractions like Tartu Town Hall Square can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
Tartu Town Hall Square Reviews
Бываем в Тарту очень часто, потому что там живут родственники. Поэтому довелось бывать там в разное время года. Всегда хотелось побывать на католическое рождество и вот получилось. Что сказать? Сказоч... more »We are in Tartu very often, because there live relatives. So I happened to be there at different times of the year. I always wanted to visit the Catholic Christmas and then it happened. What to say? Fabulous, cozy, cute. BUT Tiijo. In the evening, when illumination lights up, it seems that the city is dying out. We arrived at the town hall by 19 o'clock-there were almost no people. But the whole city was at our disposal. Wonderful glass houses (inside is warm. On the floor scattered sawdust-that the legs warmed up) with souvenirs and different sweets. The smell of mulled wine. Iridescent lights. Real fairy Tale
It was my second time in Tartu. I love the atmosphere, the active life with all the young people (student city) and the cleanliness. Just watch were you walk as the street is quite un-even. more »
