Tartu, Estonia

Moving on, to Finland's southern neighbour, Estonia. I received this postcard from dear Rita earlier this year. She wasn't sure if I'd like this but I definitely do, I think it's a really nice picture - and it has bicycles on it! :D

Tartu is the second largest city of Estonia. In contrast to Estonia's political and financial capital Tallinn, Tartu is often considered the intellectual and cultural hub, especially since it is home to Estonia's oldest and most renowned university. Situated 186 km southeast of Tallinn, the city is the centre of southern Estonia. The Emajõgi river, which connects the two largest lakes of Estonia, crosses Tartu. The city is served by Tartu Airport.
