  • it's overplayed in reviews. yes, it's cool with the kids, but a bit boring for adults only. of course there is some nostalgia and so on. but generally we have not so bright fillings as others (according to their reviews) p.s. a lot of very old toys/dols if some body interesting of history or Asian culture
  • Perfect for kids and their playroom is amazing for celebrating childrens birthdays.
  • Nice place to go to with children. Pretty toddlerproof :)
  • Amazing place for children and (more important) for adults alike. :) A must see in Tartu.
  • Playroom for kids was great!

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.
