Beautiful Town Hall that is partially open to visitors, famous Leaning House with art exhibitions that exchange every now and then and signature of Tartu: fountain with statue of kissing students. Especially nice during summer season: cafeterias have their terraces open and christmastime comes with special illuminations

Tartu Town Hall Square is in the very heart of the old town. The sculpture of kissing students adds very romantic touch to it.

It was a sunny day so everything was nicely covered in warm yellow/orange colour. A lot of restaurants and other objects is very near, something like 7-10min maybe even closer :)

Perhaps in the past everything happened around this square, but still with a population of over 100,000, the square attracts everything in and around Tartu like a giant magnet. Beautiful period building that houses the info center. The square has a fountain and a bronze 'Kissing Student' monument that is perhaps the 'necessary' stop for every tourist. Festivities, and Tartu... More

It is the center of the old town, so all the main sites are located nearby. Beautiful buildings on the square (note that some of them are completely tilted).
