Estonia's oldest university

The neoclassical main building is a prominent landmark in Tartu, which is known as the intellectual capital of Estonia. The university itself dates back to 1632 and is now located across the city...



Nice buildings

The Tartu University is very old formed by Swedish King Gustavus Adolphus. Situated very close to the city there are some lovely old buildings with lots of parkland.

Surprisingly interesting visit!

This was even nicer than the museum. Excellent guide as well. Take your time to watch and listen and inhale the atmosphere from the past.
