Attraction details
Owner description: The Kissing Students' sculpture and fountain is one of the most recognised symbols of Tartu. A fountain has stood in the same place since 1948, when newlyweds and their guests would visit it for luck, and people would also take a dip in it. The sculpture was created by Mati Karmin and completed in 1998. Since 2006 the fountain has been surrounded by tiles bearing the names of Tartu's sister cities: Bærum, Deventer, Ferrara, Fredriksberg, Hafnarfjorður, Hameenlinna, Kaunas, Luneburg, Pihkva, Riia, Salisbury, Tampere, Turu, Uppsala, Veszprem and Zutphen. They are situated in the direction that the cities lie from Tartu, marking the distances.

One day two young students, who were lovers, embraced under an umbrella in a fierce storm. Just as they embraced and their lips met, a large strike of lightning hit them, turning them into stone. So now they are locked in their lovers embrace till eternity.
Watch our for storms !!

This statue is located in the square in front of the city hall. It's a nice statue and looks quite real.
In the square you have also several cafes and restaurants, a nice place to have a rest and a photo.
