For Tartu-Tallinn, you don't even have to check the timetables, because the connection is very frequent - in peak hours the intervals are about 15 minutes or less. I recommend to use Sebe buses which depart in every 30 minutes.

Travel Tips for Tartu

Relaxed atmosphere

by Raimix

Tartu atmosphere I liked more than in Tallinn. I loved to see here more locals than tourists. Most of people were spending time at cozy town hall square, drinking beer, and walking. Some of them were relaxing at Dome Hill Park, especially younger generation, listening music from cars and sitting on benches\grass. Everything looked quite relaxing, no hurry at all.

As I know, from September till late spring or July Tartu is more or less students’ city and you can feel how young people spend their time at city. This time I visited Tartu in summer, when most students were out of university.

Dome (Ruins)

by bugulma

Construction of the dome church dedicated to apostles St Peter and Paul probably began in the second half of the 13th century. In 1299, the choir part and the nave were in use.The high-rise choir hall with head pillars was completed in the current size only in 1470's. The west side of the dome with the large twin towers was also built in the second half of the 15th century. The Dome was destroyed during the Russian-Livonian war in XVII century. In 1806, the first architect of the university, J. W. Krause, had the choir part of the Dome Church rebuilt into a library.

Crazy Springs

by AgentJX

What is the best way for students to let off some pressure from a long semester of classes, and a long winter spent in many hours of darkness? In Tartu the students welcome spring with a massive series of events revolving around the May 1st holiday. The Spring Student Days of Tartu are something to behold. I was fortunate enough to experience and take part in two of these week long events. Parties, special themes at the night clubs, a bon fire on May 1st, contests during the days, a race of self-built cars (or something that travels with gravity at an accelerated speed) and of course the great boat race on the river are jammed into one week. Rain or shine the people are out and about all over the town. Pirikov Park is filled with students and activities all week long as one of the many hubs of activities. Each year the events vary, but there are a few that I will remember. First is the boat race. The first year I just watched, the second year I competed in the race…well sort of but that is a long story. The car race is fun to watch as is the wine run. On the more traditional cultural side there is usually a folk song party. For the close of the second student days, the final party culminated with everyone holding hands in a large circle singing along covering the a large park behind the cathedral ruins. It was a unique and very memorable experience. There is also a student days in the Winter but, it features a greater deal of indoor activities, and lacks much of the energy of the Spring Student Days.

The World in Tartu

by King_Golo about Maailm

Maailm means "world" in Estonian. This bar / cafe / restaurant tries to create a global atmosphere in its premises, i.e. selling different countries' specialties, calling their drinks Dalai Lama, playing great music in numerous languages and displaying some ethno objects in their rooms. Maailm is a great place to hang out after a long day, its atmosphere is interesting and creative (the only bar with swings to sit on!!). The walls use newspaper cuttings as tapestry. garlic bread was good, and i also enjoyed the Dalai Lama fruit cocktail

Observatory

by bugulma

The observatory, designed by university architect J.W. Krause, was built at the beginning of the 19th century. In the years 1820-1839 the director of the observatory was astronomer F.W. Struve, who acquired for the observatory the largest available Frauhofer refractor and published a general catalogue of binary stars.
