The square seems to be the heart of the town. At least in the summertime it is very living and crowded with people. There is a number of street cafees and palce for drinks as well as light lunches nd dinners.

A very picturesque square with lots of sun and places to eat and drink. This and the University ambience in the Old City and Vanemuine Theatre are the main reasons for my returning to Tartu.

I spent only one day here and during that time there were so many different activities on this Town Hall Square. This is also a place to find restaurants, cafeterias and bars.

Well restored town hall with beautiful flower decoration. The square has survived relatively untouched. We pointed only one modern building. Due to this the eviroment is relaxing with several terasses offering wide variety of food and refreshments.

This is a especially nice place when there has some events. Otherwise there has a little boring. You can just pass it or sit down in some cafe and look to the Town Hall building and the statue in front of it.
