  • The Hill is a snap. Smooth steps lead up. Everything is very well kept, clean track. Beautiful trees and beautiful views from the bridge of the city. Great place to go for some lovely or romantic walks.

  • We climbed the Cathedral ruins of ulös Hill, the idea to look at the inside, but it was impossible because of the courtyard was reserved for the theatre (Econ name of the rose). Up the towers, we did not want to go to the access to, the narrow staircase expecting twins.

  • We always like to get some exercise each day. Walking up the hill, and looking at the statues and remains of a massive cathedral were a nice way to get out and walk.  more »

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.
