Streetart in Tartu

Tartu is this charming smaller brother of Tallinn, with about 100 000 inhabitants, a historic old town and with the national University founded in 1632. I love Tallinn, don't get me wrong. But Tartu seems like more easygoing, relaxed, inspiring. It might be because it does not have the obligations of a capital, because of the University being a source for creativity, or because of the less intense business environment. Anyway, in Tartu you can enjoy a hippie-like environment, an aura of creativity and inspiration, and great, friendly people. One of the signs of this is the abundance of streetart, especially stencils all around in town. Some with a really weird but very funny kind of humour.
