University of Tartu

Sculpture of Kissing Students

'The Kissing Students' sculpture and fountain is one of the most recognised symbols of Tartu. A fountain has stood in the same place since 1948, when newlyweds and their guests would visit it for luck, and people would also take a dip in it. The sculpture was created by Mati Karmin and completed in 1998.

Tartu's Medival Old Town

The heart and soul of Tartu is without a doubt the Old Town, a criss-cross of narrow, pedestrian streets that hold the town's most interesting architecture, as well as its biggest concentration of restaurants and pubs. This is the area where a medieval city once stood, but wars and fires, particularly the 'Great Fire' of 1775, wiped out nearly all signs of that version of Tartu.
