    Nothing special - just a statue

    The statue of the founder of Tartu University. Just a lifesize statue of a swedish king. Nice little park around it though where it is good to sit down for a bit, maybe have a beer or cigarette or...

    Gustav rules

    He is probably the most important figure in the history of Tartu as he created the university of Tartu.
