The Kissing Students fountain, Tartu

Look for The Kissing Students fountain, a statue atop a fountain that serves as a gathering place for local students and serves as a symbol of the city. An image of two students kissing in the rain, the fountain sits at the center of a small square surrounded by cobblestone paths and old buildings.

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.
