I used to live in Tartu until i moved to the US. I used to live on a street named Veeriku, it was a great place to live because you have many things near you. I also had a friend that lived across the street from me, and we were together many times. And then i had to move here. Whenever I go to Estonia, im always very excited to go outside and actually enjoy the nice fresh air and the nature unlike here in Brooklyn.

Tartu is a really small town, so don't expect anything grand. But it's really cozy and you can go everywhere on foot, because the distances are not long.
Foreigners are well accepted, because we have many international students. People are also quite fluent in English so don't worry about that.
About the girls... They are pretty but also quite distant, so making close friends might be difficult. Estonian girls also DO NOT like cheesy pick up lines, better just start with friendly small talk.

I can't tell much about Tartu since i live in Tallinn, but i've been there once during my class trip. Is there anything specific you'd like to know?

Drinking is a normal everyday thing haha, i think estonia is ranked second in europe by amounts of alcohol consumed. Booze is incredibly cheap (even finns just come to estonia to buy tons of booze) as well as cigarettes. Drugs are another story, weed is super expensive (20 euros per 1 gram) and most of the time you will get ripped off, unless you have a reliable dealer. Most common drug you'll find is probably ecstasy since clubbing is really popular, i think tallinn was even named party capital of europe. Girls are beautiful here, most are cold hearted bitches that only care about partying but you'll definitely find nice ones too. I don't know what else to tell lol. There's also this blog (hurr i know tumblr) about estonia, and most gifs are actually quite accurate You need to login to view this link

If smoking is popular Ill prob bring some marb red's with me as presents for some people over there then. What does the country think about American's?

Red marb is also available here in practically every shop. I personally don't see a big choice in cigarettes, my friends and i prefer philip morris or camels, but marb is nice too sometimes. In the old town of Tallinn there's a tobacco shop which has quite large selection of different cigarettes and rolling tobacco but most shops have limited choice of ciggies. As much as i know russians don't really like americans, estonians seem to be just fine with them. I don't know i haven't really noticed, most common problem in our country is this fight of estonians and russians.
