German Tartu: A Literary Walk in the Baltic German City

View on map

In Tartu, located on the banks of the beautiful Emajõgi River, beautiful houses alternate with the colours of nature and residents spend their days socially. That is why so many nobles came to live here.
The literary walk will take you around the Baltic German student city on screen or in the real world, offering the opportunity to read or listen to observations made by, for example, Rector and Mayor G. von Oettingen, naturalist K. E. von Baer, one of the organisers of song festivals R. von Antropoff, or the Baltic German Dr. Bertram, who came up with the idea of Kalev's Son, the Estonian national epic.
