About Tartu

TARTU - the only city in the world to have its name in the word sTARTUp.

sTARTUp Day takes place in South-Estonia in a city called Tartu. It is a leafy town of students, intellectuals, and creatives, bringing back sweet, youthful memories to many who have once toured the city on a bicycle during their student days.

A home to one of Northern Europe’s oldest universities, Tartu has a wealth of museums and an upbeat nightlife. Upon your arrival in Tartu, you are soon welcomed by a statue of kissing students standing in a large Classicist town square nearby museums, cafes and a large park formed around a hill.

Tartu is compact, with most sights, restaurants, and nightlife nestled across a couple of parallel streets. Being the second largest town in Estonia and a cultural center, there is always something on from theatre performances to concerts and festivals.
