Challenge / Goal

It has been a long debate on how to revitalise the riverside and create a connection between the old town and the riverside. The main aim was to encourage people to see that the urban space could be an exciting and enjoyable place to spend your free time.


Tartu closed one of its main streets in the city centre for car traffic and opened it for its citizens for the whole of July 2020. Vabaduse (Freedom) Avenue was called Autovabaduse (Car-Free) Avenue and attracted people from all over Estonia and abroad, with around 150,000 visitors during the one month period. 

Citizen participation

Tartu City Government and more than 50 partners participated in creating Car-Free Avenue.
