Travel Tips for Tartu

St Jan figures

by bugulma

There are thousand sculptures in the internal and external walls of the construction. There is no other brick church decorated with so much terracotta plastic in Europe. There are fifteen figures in the triple arch niches of the fronton which represent Judgement Day. On the facade and two sides of the tower there are other figures since the tower's frieze consisting of quaternion foils with a human head continuing in each quaternor foil on the sides of the longitudinal building as well. There are friezes and niches decorated with sculptures in the interior as well. However, the western wall, with numerous niches with sculptures and pseudotriforium located above the arcades in the niches of which there are figures sitting on a throne.

Locks

by bugulma

I heard about this tradition in Tallinn but saw in Tartu. As a matter of fact, in wedding day the bride and the bridegroom go to the bridge and they lock up the lock there that their joint family life will be strong and they will live happy and will die in the same day. And so on...

Strange music, good food

by King_Golo about Suudlevad Tudengid

Suudlevad Tudengid is Estonian for Kissing Students, which again is the name of the famous statue in front of the town hall. This place is pretty new, interestingly furnished with very convenient sofas and old-fashioned photographies on the walls. The food is good, but slightly more expensive than in other places. The only bad thing is the music: It's a sort of Estonian folk music and children's songs... when I went there today, they were playing a song about the pleasures of collecting mushrooms in the forest. Every some seconds it was interrupted by ah-uh shouting which probably meant something like "I've found one! Help me picking it up!" :-) I had the pork spits, and they were alright. The same is true for the hamburger. Plates are usually loaded with food, so something good is found easily.

Tartu Toy Museum

by kit_mc

In the back streets of the Old Town you'll find this rather neat museum. The building was renovated around 2002 and the result is a modern slightly quirky museum housing a large collection of Estonian toys and puppets from various eras.

This is a perfect place to bring the kids but adults will also enjoy wandering over the two floors and peering into cabinet after cabinet of toys. At the back of the museum is the puppet collection, both Estonian and international including some that have appeared in films.

Entrance costs 25 krooni for adults, children 20 krooni. The museum is closed Tuesdays, open until 18.00 all other days.

Devil´s Bridge

by GuntherHK

The Devil´s Bridge was designed by architect Arved Eichhorn in 1913 to celebrate 300th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty of the Russian Czarist court.
In the middle on 20th century the studenst developed a tradition of singing on the bridge during university festivities. Nowadays Universitys mens choir sing on the Devil´s Bridge. Women´s choir sings on the Angels´s Bridge.
