  • Monument to Johan Skitte (Schütte), founder and Rector (Chancellor-Swedish terminology) and Uppsala University of Tartu is made in a very original manner in print. The author of the idea and the monument is an Estonian sculptor is Tiiu Kirsipuu.

Where to stay in Tartu

As a university town, Tartu can get rowdy in the evenings. To ensure a quiet night's stay, look for more economical lodging outside of the center. That said, if you want to be in the thick of the nightlife, the center itself has quite a few budget accommodations catering to the youthful population. Unfortunately, this also means that those looking for luxury hotels in this area may be more hard-pressed. The most populous neighborhood in the city is Annelinn, bordering the Emajogi River, where you will find a variety of accommodations. Alternatively, Kesklinn, a smaller quarter, has plenty of mid-range hotels and budget guesthouses.
