Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Slightly hidden away, this is perhaps now Tartu's most famous statue with the two writers Oscar Wilde and Eduard Vilde deep in conversation, with a space on the bench just large enough for one of their fans to join the conversation....

Did they ever meet? No-one knows, but perhaps they did.

It's funny to see and hear. Both man might have been friends but actually never met. I like the idea of the playing with names.

One of the many interesting statues in Tartu. This one is about two writers that probably never met. Good for a picture!

This is the sculpture depicting the imaginary encounter of Oscar Wilde and Eduard Vilde. Clever! A good spot to take a picture!

We wondered what Oscar Wilde had to do with Tartu but then read the story of the play with their similar names and we found it clever to use this as a cultural attraction.

Named our son after Oscar Wilde ("The way to make children good is to make them happy.") so a joy to come across this on our way to the Barclay Hotel in Tartu. Great seat for boys to sit on for a photo between the two writers. Will have to visit its twin in Galway now.

This is a fun statue close to the town hall square. Tartu as a university town has lots of public art work, particularly around the main uni buildings which are virtually in the centre of town. This is a much photographed piece.

Estonia havn a rich cultural life has taken the opportunity to play with name and paired Vilde and Wilde. In my mind an ordinary statue, but admittedly with a twist

As the guide says "sculpture of Oscar Wilde and Edvald Vild having a conversation in 1890. Probably they never met."

So if they had ever met they might have looked like this !
