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.

Tourist Information – For Tartu and Tartu county, with quite a few links to institutions offering a variety of services

Trip Adviser – Easy to use and to the point with some good recommendations

UBC Cities Guide – This has a nice calendar of major events

Virtual Tourist – The crowd sourced feature gives this guide a nice personal touch

Wiki Travel Tartu – This site is short and sweet and hits most of the “high lights”. Though in our view it could do more to capture Tartu’s spirit

World Guides – offers a nice overview of festivals and events that take place during the year

University of Tartu – The university offers a “virtual tour” of activities that might interest visitors to the city.  This includes a rather fun blog.

Yahoo Travel Guide – There are bits and pieces of info here, but this is not the best guide you can find.
