Project Toomemägi Revisited awakens Toomemägi from slumber and forms it into a multifunctional and attractive place.  
This project participates in the first Tartu 2024 culture and education programme development process, as a part of "Tartu with Europe" programme line. Projects that successfully complete the process will advance to the official European Capital of Culture programme.

Toomemägi is the historical centre of Tartu and the university, the connection point with Europe through Christian culture and academic legacy. It is a perfect meeting place, where cultural diversity, the spirit of the ages and the idea of Tartu merge. 

In collaboration with landscape architects, artists and scientists, Toomemägi will be turned into a park environment, which offers beautiful sights and unexpected discoveries. With this project, two of the most important concepts for Tartu - creativity and science - will be joined. Furthermore, Toomemägi will bring generations together with unique playgrounds, open galleries, installations and increased accessibility
