The most adrenaline-filled attraction of the Elva Adventure Park, located in a beautiful pine forest, is the ride across Lake Verevi and back – a total of 800 metres of free fall between water and the sky, one of the longest in the Baltic States. Children over 3 years of age can enjoy children’s trails and mini trails of the park. At the centre of the adventure park is the legendary Verevi Motel, which has been operating for more than a hundred years. This is also the starting point, service centre and accommodation spot.

AHHAA, the biggest science centre in the Baltics, is an attractive learning environment with ‘hands-on’ exhibitions – youKolga-Jaani can try everything yourself, Eesnurga whether it be planetarium shows, school laboratory pilot programmes, creating educational materials or the science theatre. Twice a year the centre presents exciting temporary exhibitions. There are also various festivals and events all year round to popularise science among visitors of all ages. Odiste

In the park of the one-time Raadi Manor and on the runway of a former Soviet airfield stands the most important museum of the Estonian nation Leie – the Estonian National Museum. The museum is a diverse cultural and education centre that generates and develops cultural dialogue Oiu which linksÂthe past Vaibla and the future. It preserves the basic values and traditions of the nation and guards its continuity. The visitors are welcome to discover both the material and virtual world of the two permanent and various temporary exhibitions.

Toome Hill, the main building of the University of Tartu, historic buildings of the university and the cultural district around St. John’s Church are also among the pearls of the old town. The main building of the University of Tartu is one of the most outstanding examples of classicistic architecture in Estonia. The university’s historic architectural buildings can be seen while wandering around Toome Hill: Tartu Cathedral that houses the University of Tartu Museum, Old Observatory, Old Anatomical Theatre, a former barrack-building, and an infirmary where the Supreme Court of Estonia currently resides. When strolling in the park, you can enjoy a bit of nature in the middle of the city, walk across the Angel’s Bridge and Devil’s Bridge, rest on the Good Ideas Benches or cheer at your children at the playgrounds. In summer, an open-air concert by Vanemuine takes place at a natural amphitheatre in the heart of the city – the Kassitoome Valley behind the Toome Hill. During winter months, the valley is one of the best places for sledging. In the centre of the cultural district around St. John’s Church is one of the most unique examples of Gothic style medieval sacral construction in Northern Europe with its almost 1,000 terracotta sculptures. Close to the church, you can find the Antonius Guild and its courtyard where numerous summer concerts take place, Tartu Toy Museum which offers fun discoveries for some and a wave of nostalgia for others, 19th Century Tartu Citizen’s Home Museum, and the houses of Tampere and Uppsala, named after the twin towns of Tartu.

The Old Town of Tartu is under National Heritage protection because of its historical and cultural significance. The most prominent features of the old town are the Town Hall and the Town Hall Square. Nowadays, the City Government of Tartu is situated in the Town Hall, but in past the building has been used as a bank, prison and the city board of weights and measures. The Town Hall Square is adorned with one of the most recognisable symbols of the city – a fountain known as the Kissing Students. A yellow National Geographic window and the Leaning House, which people call the Pisa Tower of Tartu, are also important sights at the square. Various joyous events and festivities take place in the Town Hall Square throughout the year.
