2.6/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web
Though originally intended to be placed in Tallinn, Tartu's Father and Son' sculpture has come to serve as one of the city's most well-known pieces of public artwork. Cast in bronze by a grieving widow in 1987, the statue was purchased by the local city council in 2001 to preserve it. Visit the unusual sculpture, which depicts a toddler-aged son hand-in-hand with his father. You'll notice immediately that the child's dimensions are equal to those of his parent, creating a disorienting effect. Be sure to bring your camera, as many find posing next to a man-sized child to be a great photo opportunity.

  • It is a sculpture in the Park going in direction to the Town Hall square. You can appreciate the natural morphological differences that exist between an adult and a child.

  • The beauty is from the entire surrounding area. A long gorgeous pedestrian street with stores, restaurants, nearby river, parks, etc.
