Guides to Tartu
Tartu is an old university town much like Oxford, Cambridge or Uppsala. The university gives Tartu its spirit, which is unusually vibrant for a small town. You can find many things to do while you visit. Here are some links to help you get oriented.
Let’s Go – The Tartu page is limited, but it has a nice format.
Lonely Planet Guide – Quite a few people rely on this guide and it is useful though not updated as much as we would like.

UBC Cities Guide – This has a nice calendar of major events
Virtual Tourist – The crowd sourced feature gives this guide a nice personal touch
