Christmas Town Tartu – what’s the link between the “Village of Light” and Saint-Gobain?

As the holidays approach, Tartu will see a “village of light” built on Town Hall Square. The village of light consists of seven glass pavilions of various sizes and is a clever rebuttal to the ever-more frequent soggy winters we have been having in Estonia.

Christmas Town Tartu – what’s the link between the “Village of Light” and Saint-Gobain?

In the Village of Light’s pavilions on Town Hall Square, a traditional meeting place for the city, light and heat will begin to play their games, and young scientists and inventors will get busy and invite the public to participate in workshops. The line-up of events will include charity sales and a Christmas bazaar, part of the Botanic Garden in Tartu will move to the heart of town, hot tea and gingerbread will be able to be purchased and a couple hundred folk dancers will perform. A fire and light show will be held, the city rabbit Toivo will read fairy tales, Father Christmas’s winter games will take place, and children can lie down in a straw pavilion and enjoy two glass cottages in kid-size proportions.

 

In the evenings, the lights will come on in the pavilions. It’s an especially pleasant place to be when sleet is coming down. When the weather shows its better side, a pleasant outdoor area between the pavilions can be enjoyed along with its seating, carousels, “almost real-life” trees and cauldron over an open flame.

 

On this occasion, the Saint-Gobain Glass Estonia SE business unit Baltiklaas Glassolutions had a wonderful opportunity to make its own contribution for a good cause, in collaboration with Palmako. If you’re in the area of Tartu Christmas Town, you should know that all of the glazing in the glass pavilions was made in our Baltiklaas factory.
