Attraction details
Owner description: Toomemagi or Toome Hill was a gift from Emperor Paul I to the University of Tartu – having previously been used by townsfolk to graze cattle. For hundreds of years it had been the centre point of the local population, later becoming the site of a castle which made it the heart of medieval Tartu. In the early decades of the 19th century it was turned into a park on the initiative of the university's plantation committee, with alleys of trees, paved roads and bridged gulleys. Along with the library, anatomicum, observatory and clinic it formed the intellectual focal point of Tartu.

Toome Hill in Tartu is liked by everybody:by students to study there,by locals to walk or sit between old trees or by tourists.Its very central.There are also old ruins as its the place where the habitants lived in very past.Many legends about the place.Nice views from high points to the town.You can go walking to the Hill directly from the Town Hall or the University,many paths.When you are tired of the hot day,its good to go and rest a little.

Spend a few hours wandering around Toome hill - to avoid the city and the heat. Abundant footpaths and benches and lots to see.

Walk up the hill from the town hall square for a pleasant walk between the trees, enjoy the view over the old town from up there, and definitely spend some time wandering around in the ruins of the cathedral. There are also some interesting bridges, statues and of course, university buildings on the hill.
