Tartu Estonia

We visited Tartu, the second largest city in Estonia. It is a college town, so it has a more vibrant feel. The old town, where the college is located, has a bit of a modern edge to it. We enjoyed the change from old to a younger vibe.


Tartu Town Hall

Kissing Students fountain in front of the Town Hall

 Town Hall Square - The yellow rectangle swivels so you can frame what ever you want.


Weird sculpture called 'Father and Son'

The "Leaning House"  One side of the foundation was built on wooden pilings which eventually sank. Now the house has a definite lean.

Sculpture in front of the "Leaning House".

The white building with the columns is the University of Tartu main building. It is also represented in the wall mural in the foreground.

Dome Cathedral ruins dating back to the 13th century.

Interesting entry way.

Ice cream my favorite food. I could have done without the hairy arm.
