Interesting if slightly strange collection of plaster casts of Greek / Roman statues, plus the more interesting (to me!) student lock up in the attic, and you will probably also be able to see the main hall. Friendly and helpful staff with good English

Had a great time listening to its past history, from a German form university to the Swedish owned, now turning back to the Estonians hands, the oldest and one of the most prestigious hotels in the country, must pay a visit!

The main building is home to UT's main brand logo. The building is absolutely stunning. The architecture is impeccable and it's nicely nestled in the heart of the city.

Beautifull surroundings in an old fortress hill, we made a nice late night walk here, gorgeous cathedral located next to the well renovated old university buildings. Genuine student atmosphere on tuesday night, a lot of young students hanging around in the park sitting and biking and what not. Student bars nearby, nice stencils here and there.

I was at an international conference organised by staff from the University Library and they included a choral concert in this building - very impressive interior and fantastic accoustics. A real and justified sense of pride, with a touch of good humour in the photographs of the professoriat at the windows overlooking the grand entrance. If you want to read... More
