Tartu is a university town and a fascinating city to stay in. It also makes an ideal base for exploring Estonia using your car rental. An easy drive to the north will take you to the village of Palamuse which dates back at least 750 years, and is home to several buildings of historical interest. Close to Palamuse is the scenic Lake Kuremaa, an ideal destination for a relaxing day in the country. A little nearer to Tartu is the Elistvere Wildlife Park where visitors can view animals from wild boar to bears, roe deer to lynx, all housed in conditions as close to their natural habitat as possible. Families may like to combine a trip to Elistvere with a visit to the nearby Vidulia family playground, featuring water slides and other exciting attractions - all within easy reach with your car hire.
