Abstract: Cataclysmic variables and symbiotic stars are interacting binary stars hosting an accreting white dwarf as a primary component. Both types of stars display a variety of complex astrophysical phenomena that reveal themselves as a variability on many different time scales, from seconds to thousands of years. They are ideal targets for monitoring on metre-class telescopes, even in a poor astroclimate. Some examples of observations of symbiotic stars at Tartu Observatory, Estonia, are presented.
