Take in the views of this oasis-like setting and observe the ruins of a red-brick cathedral from the 13th century. You can also spot old bridges at the site, which serve as connectors between hills.

  • Spent about 45 minutes doing the circuit which not only had good views over the entire city scape of Tartu, but has regular story boards of the main buildings and monuments that are within the bounds ...  more »
  • My wife and I visited the Tartu January 6, 2018 year. She and I were there the last time back in the 80 's. Walking through the center of the visiting City Hall square. Bypassing the town hall we saw hill climbing on top for comfortable stairs saw the building of the Observatory and observation deck. Tartu Centre lying at our feet, look adorable! The monument is at the bottom, if I am not mistaken, Pirogovu. There are benches for rest. Recommend everyone to visit and make unforgettable photographs.

  • Spirit Hill (or Domberg, or Estonian "Dome mountain") is one of the most important and probably the most picturesque place in Tartu. Located at an altitude of 66 m English-style park was laid out in the 19th century (some trees now over 200 t-years). In addition you can see here: the main building of the University; the Observatory; the remains of the Cathedral and the University Library in its surviving parts; Angel and Devil's bridges; The sacrificial stone; Gorka kisses. Sculptures (mainly University figures), views of the city.
