Summer is coming. We have to pass a few exams , and the study year will be over. Very soon.
Very soon international students will leave Tartu and be back to home. But in Estonia during this summer a lot of events and festivals will be held. My advice is to stay here as much as you can!
I made my TOP must-see events in Estonia this summer. Enjoy!
