Tartu – the city of good thoughts

 
The Hanseatic town Tartu is the second largest city in Estonia with a population of 100.000 people, one fifth are students. The University was founded in 1632 and gives Tartu its special spirit. Tartu is famous as a meeting house for scientists, K.E.von Baer, W.Struwe, etc. have lived and worked here.Tartu has two looks, two gothic churches and segments of the town wall remind one of a mediaeval town, the present look dates from the beginning of 19th century due to reopening the university. In the 19th century Tartu was called “Athen of Emajõgi River”. Over time the symbols of the town have been changed. Despite of WW II Tartu has preserved its status as an intellectual and educational centre of Estonia.
