University of Tartu, Tartu

4.7
In addition to checking in as one of Northern Europe's oldest institutions, University of Tartu is Estonia's best and most well-regarded. Founded by Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus in 1632, the university today represents a hotbed of research and education in the country. You can explore the campus's 100 buildings that support more than 18,000 students. You'll find that the main building serves as one of Tartu's main attractions thanks to its classical architecture reminiscent of Greece, complete with triangular facade and sizeable columns. Be sure to pay a visit to one of the four different museums managed by the institution, including its own museum of history.

  • This is one of the best universities in the world. Not available for everybody, but best part of the generations.  more »
  • Famous and historical Tartu University holds a big quarter. Walked between the buildings of the faculties. Recommend, atmospheric place, even if you have long forged for themselves with the topic of education, having successfully graduated from the secondary school 8. I personally love these European training areas with large historical traditions.
