Overview

When walking in the Old Town of Tartu, head also for the other side of the riverbanks where you will see the early classicist Pistohlkors or Katariina House. It is a building from the 18th century that used to belong to Lieutenant WC von Pistohlkors. The interior design of the building's hall in the style of Louis XVI is worth special attention. Tartu Town Museum is currently located in Katariina House. The exhibition "Dorpat.Yuryev.Tartu." introduces you to the history of the city.

Referred to locally as 'Catherine's House', which name hides the small but succinct Tartu City (history) Museum. The reality behind this local name is that Catherine the Great of Russia having gifted the powers that be in Tartu the financing to build Kivisild (the Stone...More
