Uppsala House in Tartu

Uppsala House is a typical 18th century citizen’s home – a one-storey building with a mansard roof. In 1993, the cities of Uppsala and Tartu entered into a cooperation project 'Restoration of Old Buildings'. This led to the restoration of Uppsala House, which currently belongs to Tartu City Government.

Did you know...?
The families of a secretary of the highest Livonian court, a saddle maker, tailors and representatives of many other interesting professions have lived in the building at different times. There were rental flats for students in the building in the beginning of the 19th century.

Only the exterior of the Uppsala House can be enjoyed by the visitors!

The building is listed in the Estonian National Register of Cultural Monuments.
