Raadi cemeteries “Walker’s guide”

A pocket map of gravesites located in Tartu Raadi cemeteries of people who were important in the sense of national and cultural history was completed in the spring of 2019. There are 92 gravesites, cemetery chapels together with cemetery names as well as roads and gates marked on the map. The guide is foremost a tool for moving around Raadi cemeteries and discovering graves important in the sense of cultural history – this is why the map can only be asked for from the main building of the Raadi cemetery and the Tartu city information center located on the first floor of Tartu city hall. The guide is in Estonian and free of charge.
