The biannual Tartu Student Days, that take place each Autumn and Spring, started today and offer about 140 different events from 29th of April until 5th of May.


Tartu Student Days is a tradition that can be traced back to the early 1960s. The Student Days are the highlights of each semester and bring dozens of entertaining and educating events, competitions and festivals, for instance the popular “wet’n’wild” boat rally on the river Emajõgi and the self-made flying contraption competition “Karsumm”, the Night Song Festival and the “fools market”, where students sell different and often rather useless things on Town Hall Square. The main theme of the festival this year is the symbol of the Tartu Student Spirit – river Emajõgi, everyone is invited to notice and appreciate the beauty of it, as well as to see how to safely have fun by, on and above this river!

The main organizer of the week-long festival is the University of Tartu Culture Club together with number of different partners.
