Tartu Cathedral is one of the biggest churches in Estonia and the only medieval church with two towers in the country. Its construction is thought to have commenced in the 13th century and continued until the early 16th century. The final parts completed were its towers. The church was destroyed during the Livonian War and has not functioned as a place of worship since.

The towers were opened to the visitors in spring 2005. In addition to a lovely view on Tartu and its surrounding area from the two viewing platforms of the cathedral, the visitors of the towers can take a closer look at one of the most remarkable Gothic brick constructions in Old Livonia.
