An impressive building both outside and inside. Within coexist very modern things with traces of the past. Worth entering.

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

If you visit Tartu, university main building is a must-see. It is possible to go inside the building but if you want to see the lock-up, art museum or assembly hall, you should plan your trip for weekday (they are open from Monday to Friday 11:00-18:00).

I had gone to Tartu on the recommendation of an Estonian student that I'd met at home,who told me how lovely it was. It is really beautiful and still rather representative of true Estonian culture ie absence of Irish themed pubs,strip clubs and the like. I enjoyed seeing such a variety of large green well manicured parks and green spaces... More
