I liked my exchange semester very much because of the beauty of Estonia and the great nature. I appreciate Tartu for its cosiness and friendly people. The Estonian Aviation Academy is a great school and I especially loved its familiar atmosphere and how modern the study equipment is.

I liked studying in Tartu very much. It is a charming city with its town hall square and beautiful Toome Park. There are many things to do, such as visiting the different museums or going ice skating at the Christmas market. Tartu has a lot of restaurants and bars, so nightlife was definitely not lacking. I was very impressed by the nature of Estonia with its birch forests and swamps.
