Just about a 20-minute drive through the beautiful rolling hills of central Estonia, you'll find yourself along the shore of one of the prettiest lakes close to Tartu – Saadjärv. The Ice Age Centre is actually more of an interactive exhibition, exploiting 3 floors of educational entertainment. It's generally geared towards children, but there are fun activities for visitors of all ages and most likely everyone will learn some great new facts about various 'ice ages'. The friendly staff always seem eager to assist their guests and they offer tours in three languages – Estonian, English and Latvian. The life-like exhibits make learning more exciting by providing children with fun activities and games. There is a terrace by the lake and a small cafeteria, which provides snacks and warm food, but don’t count on a large meal. During the warmer months, there are also a few other distractions to make the drive worthwhile. You can swim in the lake - there’s also a small zoo and an amusement park nearby.
