 History and activities 

At the beginning the members of the Tartu Latvian Society gathered informally for singing in the choir. Slowly the idea appeared about the founding of the Tartu Latvian Society. The Society was founded in 2012, officially uniting the Latvians living in Tartu and those, who had interest about Latvia’s life and culture.  

The Society members meet to sing, commonly celebrate different events and discuss ideas and plans for the future.
