Tartu Old City, Tartu

4.6
With winding streets and a host of neoclassical buildings, Tartu Old City serves as a cultural and spiritual hub. Though much of the medieval old town was destroyed in a late 18th-century fire, you'll find the area has rejuvenated in the centuries since. Explore the many churches, squares, and corridors. Stop by the Town Hall and St. John's Church, two of the surviving medieval buildings that harken back to Tartu's highly respected position in old Estonia. After wandering for a while, stop in one of the many cafes along the streets to relax and people-watch over a cup of coffee. Put Tartu Old City on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tartu tour itinerary builder app.
