A short description of Tartu

Tartu is a South-Estonian town that is known as a gathering point of academics since the 17th century. Today it also stands out more and more for its flourishing street art scene and highly promising alternative culture. Likely to hide a surprise behind each corner, Tartu offers a lot more during an evening stroll than an average urban landscape does.

Wandering through the cozy-looking wooded neighborhoods, one may encounter more than classical urban art usually offers. A remarkable environment is created by mixture of graffiti, narrative stencil art and decorations fabricated by the locals. Including other phenomena that occur within the everyday life, for example street indications sometimes pointing towards the sky, the particularity of this unique place cannot be forgotten.
