The Treaties of Tartu were peace treaties between the Russian SFSR on one side and newly independent Estonia and Finland, which had previously been parts of Imperial Russia, on the other. They were negotiated and signed in Tartu in Estonia in 1920 after the Finnish Civil War, and after war and a truce on January 1, 1920 between Bolshevik Russia and Estonia. The treaty with Russia recognized the independence of Estonia. The treaties solved disputes and issues connected with cessation of hostilities, such as delineation of borders (border agreement) and the transfer of property.

For the Russo-Swedish treaty concluded in Tartu (Dorpat) in 1564, during the Livonian War, see Treaty of Dorpat.
