About Lõunakeskus Live Demo

Lõunakeskus (South Center) lies in the south area of Tartu, Estonia. It is the largest shopping center in South-Estonia. Center was opened in 2001 on a 15 000 square meter area. At the moment it has increased to 66 000 square meters and there are more than 160 shops and service providers. Three-story building has become relatively complex due to multi-staged construction. The tenants are constantly changing and the shops are growing or downsizing. 120 000 people visit the building in a week and the center attracts approximately 6 million visitors annually.
