August Tartu Parnu

by nuppe

How is Tartu in early August? A little bit dead? What's the best way (and the time or distance) to get between Tartu and Parnu?

Re: August Tartu Parnu

by riksti

Tartu IS a bit more dead in August, although it will depend on when you're going because people will start slowly coming back to be ready for another year in the uni. It doesn't mean there isn't plenty of things to do, though ;)

If you don't have a car then bus is the easiest way to travel between Tartu and Pärnu. The fastest buses should take less than 3 hours. You can check the times at www.bussireisid.ee

Travel Tips for Tartu

The botanic garden

by LanaFromRiga

The botanic garden of The University of Tartu founded in 1803. In the area of 3,1 hectares there are 6 000 kind of plants. The most interesting are palm trees collection, collection of cactuses and roses. Nice possibility to enjoy beautiful garden.

Town Hall

by bugulma

The Town Hall was planned by the town building chief of the time, Johann Heinrich Bartholomäus Walter from Rostock. On the first floor of the present Town Hall building were a jail and public scale hall, on the upper floors the town council. The corner stone was laid in 1782, and though the official opening was in 1786 the finishing work went on up through 1789.

Wildlife at Ilmatsalu

by GeoV

A few miles west of Tartu is the village of Ilmatsalu where there is a wetland area with excellent bird-watching at most times of the year. There is a nature trail - along which some attractive butterflies can also be seen - and a bird observation tower with good views over a wide area. The Ilmatsalu Motell is conveniently situated near the start of the trail and a review of the motel appears under 'Ilmatsalu' on VT. This gives fuller details of the wildlife that might be seen here, (as well as the motel information).

Monday night or anynight

by AgentJX about Püssirohu Kelder

One friend described Püssirohu Kelder (The Gun Powder Cellar) as his vision of Valhalla. There is nothing better than walking into this place on a cold winter’s night. When you open the heavy wooden door you a greeted with a blast of hot air, music, and the mixed smells of crowded beer hall. The building was originally a storage house for gunpowder that filled in the space between the two hills of the old town’s fortification. Its ceilings are high, its tables made from thick cuts of wood, and the bar at the far end is always crowded. Monday nights are Karaoke nights and tend to draw in the biggest crowds during the winter. Many people sing and even more dance. The open space in front of the stage becomes a mass of dancing people all enjoying their night. However, Monday is not the only day to enjoy Püssirohu. There are frequent concerts in the evenings and the food is worthy enough to enjoy the dinning options as well. The crowds can be large (though smaller in the summer) and there is a cover for karaoke (15-30 kroons) along with covers for many of the bands that play. Pork collar is tasty, as well as the soups and desserts. Küüslauguleivad (garlic bread made from dark bread) is a great snack when sitting back for a long night of karaoke sheltered from the cold winter night.

Walk through Tartu (II) - Supilinn

by King_Golo

Supilinn is an old part of Tartu with lots of old wooden houses. It has a very special character as it is not a place that most tourists see. Instead, it's more original Estonian... even rural in a way. The streets are dirt roads, i.e. muddy at the moment, dusty in summertime. The houses are slightly run-down, the dogs are running around unleashed. But walking through Supilinn, you'll discover all those things that seem so normal, but are interesting in a way: clothes drying outside, the trees grow uncontrolled, a cat enjoys some sunrays on a rooftop of a garage... There are plenty of interesting motives for photos. And Supilinn has a curious thing, too: The most colourful house of Tartu in Oa street 28...
