Tartu Town Hall Square, Tartu

(140+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Tartu Town Hall Square and other Tartu attractions using our handy Tartu holiday planner.

  • United square, where the rugged tuber kivetys. Empty is nothing to see. If this is a Christmas market, so there are certainly a lot of good.

  • I love visiting here and as it is not strange in the company, and not alone, just sit, watch, eat, wander around, take pictures, potorchat' network, share experiences, observe people, students enjoy the fountain. Sometimes noisy fairs are held here in summer, the area is transformed into a café, unfortunately never been here in the winter, Christmas and new year. Somehow it never worked.

  • Bella plaza main, small but nice walk. It is located opposite the former Palace of dancing or City Hall. Illuminated at night, surrounded by various sites to take the photo or buy handicrafts. Beside it is the famous statue of the Trtu, place forced drunk to take the picture.
