The towers of Tartu Cathedral at the University of Tartu Museum

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.

  • amazing

    a beautiful place and amazing view over the city, note expensive and also easy to go in the stairways. great place to take pictures and to film

  • 宗教改革の時に廃墟になったようです。

    トーメの丘にあります。今は廃墟です。その廃墟でもかつての姿を思い出させます。13世紀後半から約150年かけて建てられた壮大な教会の跡です。

  • Собор на холме

    Впечатляющий собор на вершине холма. Фактически представляет собой руины, но весьма живописные. В алтарной части располагается музей.
