Tartu, with its population of 101,246 in an area of 38.8 square kilometres, is the second largest city of
Estonia. It is also the centre of Southern Estonia. The Emajõgi River, which connects the two largest
lakes of Estonia, flows for the length of 10 kilometres within the city. The first written records of
Tartu date from 1030. Tartu is a university town with a rich cultural heritage. Its peculiar
architecture, fascinating events, interesting exhibitions and the image of being a Hanseatic town
attract foreign visitors.

Town Hall Square, the former Great Market. The trapezium - shaped square dates back to the period
before the fires. The buildings in classical style were erected during reconstruction The most imposing
building is the Town Hall, the early classicist structure with Baroque elements.

-     The kissing students in the middle of Town Hall Square have become a symbol of Tartu.

-     From Town Hall Square we turn to the main street of the old town. It is Rüütli street with shops on

3.seminar i Vörö 04.05-07.05.2010.

 

Alle partnere var invitert til seminaret. Fra Vadsø videregående skole/OPUS, Norge,  deltok seks
deltakere og fra Mykolas Romeris Universitet, Lithauen, deltok to deltakere.

 

All forarbeid før seminaret var gjort av vertskap etter innspill fra partnere i forkant av seminaret.
Det ble gjennomført planleggingsmøter for prosjektet, seminar om Karola Nasjonal Park , besøk til
turist og servicebedrifter, informasjon om Siksali Arendult Center og ekskursjoner til Lahemaa
Nasjonal Park, Karula Nasjonal Park og Haanja Natur Park.

 

Spesielt besøkene og ekskursjonene var viktige i en nettverksbygging. Under planleggingsmøtene
fikk Vadsø vgs/OPUS i oppdrag å rapportere prosjektet overfor Nordpluss administrasjonen. 
Det var også enighet om å videreføre flest mulig av kontaktene som er skapt i form av nye aktiviteter.
