Tartu was closed to the outside world during the Soviet rule, because the biggest Baltic military aerodrome was situated here. Since the independance of Estonia the town has opened up; the citizens of Tartu are most hospitable towards the visitors of their city and every year more tourists come to visit this charming university town.

Tartu is internationally known for its university - one of the oldest in Europe. Many international conferences and seminars are held here. It gave the city the reputation of being "Athens on the River Emajõgi".

Over the recent years most of the sights have been restored, the number of high-level hotels, recreation sites, cafés and restaurants has increased fast and Tartu has become a good place to spend some time.
