    Voru's centre is full of beautiful wooden houses, most of them situated along Juri and F.R.Kreutzwaldi road. It is well worth strolling through the town and seeing this typical kind of Estonian architecture.

    This is a great place to eat very good local dishes for a very good price.
    Many dishes are available, but you must ask them in estonian as they appear in the menu.
    Fresh salads and bread are included in the price!
    In the same building you find a supermarket located above the restaurant.

    This place is nothing fancy, infact it is very simple. A big counter with bakery goods lining the shelfs. There are a few small tables in the corner and along the windows. The baked goods give the room a wonderful smell. I am sure the fact that I was soaked with rain made the place that much more appealing, but every town needs a great place to get out of the unavoidable weather situations. Low prices made it easy to sit for a while and enjoy some tea while drying off.

    Bus and car are the best ways to get to Voru and they are also the best ways to see the countryside surrounding the town. Buses from Tartu are frequent, though the last bus from Voru to Tartu is not that late in the evening. Voru is a great place to catch buses to the tiny towns in the countryside.

    Despite the relative small size of Estonia, the country features several distinct dialects, including one in Võru. The dialect of the area reflects the separate history of Southern Estonia. As the Estonian language developed it attempted to combine a northern and southern dialect. The current Estonian language is closely connected to the original northern language while, the language in the south has some distinctly different sounds and is connected to the Setu language.

    Võru where Kreutzwald lived and worked as a doctor, now has the Kreutzwald Memorial Museum (in his former house) and highlights the towns connection to Estonians cultural heritage. The town itself steeps in its tradition as a center for the development of Estonian culture.

    Favorite thing: I have been in the region of Võrumaa on several occasions and while I have enjoyed the towns that I have visited, the true joy of the region is in the natural world. Võru is a great starting point to visit the surrounding countryside, which is full of lakes, hills, small valleys, fields and forests. It is a great place to visit in the summer sun, or the winter snow.

    Fondest memory: For me it was the rain that soaked me from head to toe while walking from booth to booth at the folklore festival. There is nothing like a bus ride home soaked by rain from a place well worth the wet weather. Võru has good weather too, every other time I have visited the region the weather has been very pleasant.
