  • The great square in the old town of Tartu emblazoned with the fountain with student couple kissing each other. An appropriate setting for the university town of Tartu. In all its simplicity is a must.

  • Coming to Raecoja Square you can see the sculpture of two students kissing in the rain, seems to be only a source but this work is valuable for the city of Tartu to reflect accurately the romanticism and the spontaneity of the student life, characteristics that has and describe this city's youth environment.

  • Tartu is worth a visit if only for the sake of this sculpture. Very touching and beautiful evokes pleasant memories. You can stand for long, admire and think positive.
