Tartu Christmas 2018

We all know that Tallinn is one the most beautiful and nice winter cities in the world but now it was time to check another winter town, Tartu.

Again we spend our nights in Tampere Maja, and again slept like baby, enjoyed good breakfast and of course sauna!

Cause there was four of us and a dog, we reserved a family room. It has separate bedroom, living room with two beds and kitchen corner.


Living room


And the best part is that you can take your pets with you. There is enough space in the rooms, nice backyard for dogs to play. And in 100 meters from the Maja there is a big park where you can walk your dog.

Most of the restaurants are still open on 23.12 and some on 24.12, especially on Rüütli street (pedestrian zone) but on 25.12 most of the restaurants are closed, so prepare to do some googling beforehand. In Estonia most of the restaurants donn’t have a website or they don’t update those but almost all the places have their own Facebook-page and usually you can find updated business hours there.

This time we had our dinner in amazing La Dolce Vita pizzeria and really good Indian restaurant Mandala. And we can highly recommend both.

Local brewery Pühaste has opened new restaurant to Tarto and we checked it out also. The tap list was impressive!

Tartu is really nice and quiet Christmas town but there is not that much to do. You can do some shopping in local Kaubamaja -shopping center, eat and drink in restaurants and have some hot wine on Raekoja Plats -town hall area and walk around old town or Toompea -park but that’s that. So remember to take your favorite book and some board games with you, otherwise you are going to have some long days ahead.
