The dwelling often called the Catherine's House is built in 1790. The influential newspaper Postimees was printed in this house between the years 1886 and 1896 as was the first encyclopedia in Estonian. An urban legend says Catherine II stayed in that house. She didn't. Tartu City Museum sets in there.
