One weekend we were talking about a possibility of visiting Tartu and on the following one we were there already! That was a quick decision! After huzzle and buzzle of Tallinn Tartu makes a nice change with its tranquilness. Fortunately there were very few tourists there so we were able to enjoy original Tartu by taking peaceful walks and visiting some of its museums.

To us it seemed as there were lots of cats in Tartu and especially black cats like this one walking on a fence which I caught with my camera when returning to our room in the evening.

We only spent two days in Tartu and though we managed to see a lot, there is much more to see there and we are planning to spend some days in Tartu maybe already next year. I can recommend this lovely city to anybody! Go there!!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of green areas, river running through it and history everywhere
  • Cons:Takes too long to get there from Finland if you plan to stay only for a weekend
  • In a nutshell:Cheaper and friendlier than Tallinn and not discovered by tourists yet
  • Last visit to Tartu: Aug 2005
