"Quiet Summers" Tartu Local Custom Tip by AgentJX

Tartu Local Customs: 6 reviews and 5 photos

Since students are such a big part of Tartu's existance, summers in Tartu are actually very calm and quiet. You can find the usually day trip tourists from Tallinn or those who are on a tour of the Baltics, but the town itself becomes much less active. The locals are still out but much of the youth heads home. As a result many of the bars and clubs are much less crowded in the summer. Club Tallinn (one of the most popular night clubs in town) actually closes for the summer and moves to Parnu.
If you want to see Tartu when it is most alive, the week around the first of May is Spring Student Days when there are all sorts of events going on all around town.
