Welcome to Annelinn

Annelinn (Estonian for "Anne Town") is a neighbourhood of Tartu, Estonia, located on the left bank of Emajõgi River. It has a population of 27,755 (as of 31 December 2013), which makes 27,34% of the whole city. With an area of 5.40 km2 (2.08 sq mi). It is also the largest. Annelinn mainly consists of 5 and 9-storey Soviet apartment buildings. The project was made between 1969–1973 by Mart Port and Maie Meelak from "Eesti Projekt". It was originally planned to consist of four microdistricts but only two were finished. Annelinn is planned with the shape of amphitheater with ascending relief, and an imaginary centre located on the watermeadow of the Emajõgi River.

Other than that information that Wikipedia shared with us, this is also my home. I have wandered the many streets and yards of the neighborhood with my camera and without. Probably it would be dull for many, but if your look deeper, there is always interesting stuff to be found.
