About Tartu

Teeming with students, Tartu has a distinct "smart" identity. Home to the oldest university in Estonia, it's a city where bohemian quirks meet with the onward march of modernity. This all comes together in a strange landscape of quaint wooden districts and a small, lively centre, with none of that big city rush. With its population of 100000 (yes, we didn't miss a zero here, it really is a hundred thousand people) the second biggest “city” in Estonia will welcome you warm-heartedly without caring about your age or budget, and if there weren't those bustling cheap student bars on almost every street corner, you would feel like you have gone back in time a century or two.
