  • Students city, this is Tartu. The fountain is very nice. It gives you a feeling of inner peace and youth. If you are with your partner then you cannot resist kissing. 
  • "We have fun while we're young!" -medieval hymn students is well suited to this work Mother monument frivol'nogo Carmina established in 1998 year. In 2006, around the installed plates with names of Tartu's sister cities of which the most known are Uppsala, Kaunas, Tampere and Pskov. So this year the fountain can be interpreted and in the context of twining relations (literally, even nursing-sister-cities, anyway).
