Tartu Town Hall Square, Tartu

4.8
#1 of 19 in Historic Sites in Tartu
Home to a neoclassical municipal building and much of the town's activity, Tartu Town Hall Square represents the historical heart of the city. Surrounded by classical houses and shops, the square plays home to a famous local statue depicting two love-struck students kissing atop a fountain. Wander the area and you'll find remnants of the bustling activity that once took place here, ranging from craft markets to the many cafes lining the plaza. Don't miss the so-called "leaning house" on one side of the square or listening in to the town hall's bells ringing through the air. Keep a close eye out and you'll be able to spot the Soviet hammer-and-sickle crest adorning some of the buildings, signs that these are actually post-World War II reconstructions rather than originals. With our custom trip planner, Tartu attractions like Tartu Town Hall Square can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Town Hall square being touted, along with Prices, as the main attraction of the town. In fact, she is quite cute, but on many photos it seems bigger than it actually is. May, in fact, that we were in Tartu in early December, and sjozhilas from the cold? 30 minutes is enough to study it in detail. Would you like to visit here in the summer and compare.
