Aptly located near the market, Sculpture Bronze Pig is a charming reminder of several things. First, the pig is the city's symbol of prosperity. On a more practical level, the market sells pork--hence the typical cuts of pork engraved and listed on one side of the statue. The smiling pig was brought to the square in 2008 and is meant to help new butchers with cutting meat properly. If you look closely, you may also find another meaning here: it smiles standing atop an overturned wooden tub--a typical basin where the animal is placed after slaughter. Sculpture Bronze Pig is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Tartu Edition.

  • Image of a disproportionate pig near the river. Due to its extreme size attracts attention, it's in volume might be 7 pigs great.

  • Mumps is located just before the entrance to the exhibition hall near Tartu Kaubamaja. Laugh not average see Guinea pig on the monument but on her left side, we have a description of the meat we eat:)
