The Emajõe-Peipsi barge is a unique wooden trading vessel. In Estonia, Peipsi barges sailed the inland waters for more than 600 years – from the 14th until the middle of the 20th century – thus contributing greatly to the prosperity of several Estonian towns, especially Tartu.
On the swampy plains of Emajõgi River, where the sandy hills that had formed on the area of Tartu made crossing the river easier, a settlement emerged already several centuries ago. The existence of the castle situated on the foreland of Toome dates back to the 5th century, and the discovery site of the settlers of Kunda culture, which lies in the city's current boundaries in Ihaste, could extend Tartu`s history even up to 10,000 years.

Founded in Tartu in 1909 on the initiative and with the support of the nation – with the task to protect and develop the history and culture of Estonia. The Estonian National Museum is an ethnologically and cultural- historically oriented museum which aims at reﬂecting everyday life and culture as a way of life, taking into account its periodical, spatial and social diversity. The museum focuses on collecting, preserving and studying material concerned with the culture and history of Estonians, Estonian minorities and Finno-Ugric peoples and making it accessible.
The Taevaskoda sandstone outcrops, located in the landscape protection area of the primeval valley of the Ahja river, are among the most frequently visited sites among hikers and summer vacationers in Southern Estonia. More than 80,000 people visit the Taevaskoda hiking trail every year.
We will take a 3-kilometre walk on the banks of the Ahja River on the Taevaskoda hiking trail, which is part of the pan-Estonian network of visitor sites of the State Forest Management Centre. The most attractive sights of the trail are the ancient sandstone outcrops rising from the river bed towards the sky.
Only during this walk, a pop-up restaurant offering Estonian flavors and a souvenir shop will open their doors in the middle of nature.
We will introduce you to the wonderful nature and cultural history here, including several shooting locations of the Estonian cult film The Last Relic.
The most beautiful town in Estonia, as the old song goes, or the Athens of River Emajõgi, as the old saying goes, was not spared in the whirlwinds of war of the 20th century. Tartu was one of the hardest-hit towns during World War II. It was not completely razed to the ground like the border town Narva but its face was changed to the extent of unrecognizable. Of the rapidly alternating cycle of German and Soviet occupations, the latter endured the longest and plunged Estonia, and Tartu into a stupor of a half century. In order to keep things under control and terrorize the population opposing the foreign regime, prisons and detention centers sprang up everywhere. The most notorious in Tartu was the so-called „grey house“, a pre-trial prison for political prisoners, now the KGB Cells Museum. The museum tells the story of the Soviet repression and survival of the native resistance through many decades until Estonia’s independence was restored.
