Its a very tiny town, so the university building looks really impressive in the context of small houses and old architecture. Good for a short look around, renovated and something you would want to see during your trip to Estonia.

There are some impressive buildings but generally that is about it. You cannot miss it in this town. Don't go out of your way looking for it!

This university is one of the oldest in Europe, with beautiful tall columns. Many famous and important people have graduated from its hallowed halls.

Amazing building, classic shape but for me to hidden from the tourists. In fact is in the old town, but not everyone is coming there, but is worth to see it.

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!

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.
