Tartu Railway Station was built in 1876 outside of the city’s borders. It could be reached by Maarjamõisa Street, which was lined with trees. The main building of the station consists of three parts and has a standard façade and a transverse gabled roof. Warehouses, platforms, a depot, a water tower and two houses for railway workers were located next to the main building. The station was reopened to passengers in 2012, having undergone a complete overhaul in various stages over the preceding years to the designs of architect Aivar Roosaar.
