Our story


Why Lossi 36?

Lossi 36 began on an early September morning in 2017, when a group of international master’s students sat down together in a small auditorium in the far reaches of Europe. What had gathered us at this address – Lossi 36, Tartu, Estonia – was a shared passion for discussing politics, society, and culture related to the post-communist East.

After months of discussions, we began our journey of building bridges between people and ideas. Named after the place where we all once meet, Lossi 36 was finally born in June 2018.
