“Eesti linnaehituse ajalugu. Keskajast tsaariaja lõpuni”

“History of Estonian Urban Planning” is the first book that deals with the formation, development, and in some cases also the demise of all historical cities that remain on the territory of today’s Estonia from the Middle Ages to the First World War. The history of the oldest cities in Estonia goes back more than seven hundred years. Despite the repeated destruction, the cities have been rebuilt again and again – the once chosen place and the established street network have remained relatively permanent.

In a richly illustrated voluminous book, the story of the historical cities of Estonia – Tallinn, Tartu, Narva, Pärnu, Viljandi, Rakvere, Võru, Kuressaare, Valga, Haapsalu, Paide, Paldiski, Narva-Jõesuu, Lihula – is traced by era, during which our cities have been formed and developed.
