Little text, many pictures

Okay!

Right now I have very little new material to present to you, so I decided to post a few pictures I have taken recently. I will comment on them if needed 🙂

Grand Opening of my faculty in the festive hall of the main university building. I am officially enrolled in “Social sciene and education”, but most of my courses actually are from different faculties, mainly theology…

Café “Werner“, located in Ülikooli street (and only 100m from the main university building) offer a fantastic range of cakes and cookies, not to mention superb coffee or chai. Upstairs, the restaurant proidves small but nonetheless tasty dishes to fair prices.

The ESN (Erasmus Student Network) organises a lot of different activities for its members, including a monthly bier bingo at Illegard, a place again situated within 3 minutes from the main building. Bier Bingo is bingo while drinking beer. And: I won a round! I was awarded a free pizza from the pub which I shared happily with my table.

This picture was taken standing very close to the raekoja plats. The blue tent is set up at the beginning of the cathedral hill which leads to the cathedrale itself following the Lossi street. This park is the only public place in Tartu where drinking outside is permitted (and therefore frequently used!). From this spot, it is 100m to the university, 100m to the Illegard and about 300m to my dorm at Raatuse.

On top of the hill, one can see the remainings of the Tartu Cathedral, of the city’s landmarks. Almost entirely a ruin by now (due to lack of care from the Swedish emperors at that time in the 17th century) has a small part been renovated and hosts the Museum of the University of Tartu.

    tere poisikene!

    it looks like that you more or less are getting familiar with some of the estonian “must do´s” ! ihope that your respect to our national-identity and it´s symbols will grow in the next weeks and months. espacially i´m thinking about kalevipoeg, viru valge and vana tallin! 🙂 please never try to understand one of those three as a single! almost you have to take minimum two of them or you will never get the estonian spirit!!!
    enjoy your time!
