Interesting workshop

Had a lovely collective composition workshop. A great way to spend an afternoon with your teammates and create something together.



A very interesting tour about street-art

The Tartu street-art tour was very interesting and the guides know about the topic from their first-hand experience, knowing the artists personally. The guides also know how to make the tours...



Good overview of street art

I warmly recommend, the tour was very interesting and informative, gave a good overview of street art. Took less than two hours
