1: Tartu - City of the Good Thoughts. When you go to a new city and you just go to the middle of the city it is like trying to see with blind eyes. You can imagine what the whole city is like but you will never actually know what it is like. To know what a city is like you have to see every part of it not just the most popular places. | Tartu

2: The University of Tartu | Tartu University is a beautiful building. A lot of people study there every year and it is believed to be the best university in Estonia. Even people from other countries come to Tartu to study in the university. | 1

4: Town Hall | Town Hall is like the White House of Tartu. All of the important things are decided there. It is surrounded by Town Hall Square. It also has a pharmacy in it and every 15 minutes the bells ring so people know what time it is. In front of the Town Hall there is also a fountain of the Kissing Students. | 3

6: Town Hall Square | Town Hall Square is a place that a lot of the people in Tartu go through every day. It is in the middle of the city and it has a great view of Emajogi. After every 15 minutes the bells of the Town Hall ring and every time it is the beginning of a new hour it plays a song with the bells. It's great to just walk there and enjoy the view while the bells are ringing. | 5 | -

8: Vanemuine | Vanemuine is a place where people go to see plays. There are 2 Vanemuines. One of them is the Big Vanemuine and the other is the Small Vanemuine. Both of them are on the street that is also called Vanemuine. The big Vanemuine is more popular and people usually go there a lot more then the Small Vanemuine. | 7

10: Kissing students | When you're walking through Town Hall Square there is one thing you can't miss and that is the statue of the Kissing Students. It is right in front of the Town Hall and it is actually a fountain. It's a statue of two lovers kissing and one of them holding an umbrella. It is just magificent. | 9

12: Emajogi | Emajogi is a river that flows through Tartu. It flows right past Tasku, Town Hall Square, etc. It is about 20-145m wide and about 100 kilometres long. It flows from one lake to another. It flows from lake Vortsjarv to lake Peipsi. | 11 | .. | - | - | -

14: Ihaste | Ihaste is a wonderful place that is only a few kilometres from the center of Tartu. It has a lot of beautiful forests and Emajogi also flows through it. It kind of looks like a modern version of a countryside. Most of the people who live there have their own houses and only a few people live in flats. The best part of Ihaste is the view. | 13 | -

16: Emajogi in Ihaste | One of the great things about Ihaste is that emajogi flows through it. Since Ihaste is full of forests and animals the river makes it even more breathtaking. During the winter some parts of the river freeze so the river looks better every day. | 15 | - | -

18: Popular Places in Tartu | As usual the places where people like to go the most are the shopping centers. There are two very popular places where people in Tartu usually go. These places are Tasku and Kaubamaja. | 17

19: Tasku and Kaubamaja are in the middle of the city so people go there a lot. Some people just go there do sit with their friends and relax. There are a lot of shops everywhere and also there are a lot of places where people can just sit and relax before they do what they were planning to do. I don't think it's bad that people go there a lot because going there is just a part of our lives. | 18

20: Tasku | Tasku in the newest of the two places I mentioned. It was built just a few years ago and it is already very popular. It also has a cinema and a place you can play lasertag at so you will never be bored there. Tasku is right next to the bus station so when people come from other places the first thing they see when they come out of the bus is Tasku. | 19

21: 20

22: Kaubamaja | I remember when Kaubamaja was built. Then i thought that we don't need something like that and i was sad because it ruined a great view from Vanemuine. Now that it has been there for more then 7 years I understand that is actually a great place to hang out. It is like a little bit older version of Tasku. | 21

23: 22

24: My opinion | I think that the most beautiful place to live in is Ihaste and I am fortunate enough to live there. It is a few kilometres from the city center but it is still a part of Tartu. When you come to Tartu you shouldn't just look at the places in the middle of Tartu, you should also go to the borders of Tartu. Ihaste is just one of the great places there. | 23
