Tartu St. John´s Church, which was built in the 14th century in Gothic style, is one of the oldest in Estonia. It is unique in Europe due to its many original terracotta sculptures. We will have the opportunity to visit the Church free of charge and enjoy memorable concert for only the participants of ESN 2015 Conference.

The special concert involves four men, four chairs, four cellos and music that charms the senses.
