Angel's Bridge

09 Mar 2020
Toome Hill's larger bridge is the yellow and white, classical style Angel's Bridge, which stretches over Lossi street. It was built in 1838, and dedicated to the university's first rector (post-reopening), G. F. Parrot. The name is thought to come from a linguistic twist - part of the hill is landscaped like an English garden and the words 'English' (Inglise) and 'Angel' (Ingel) are nearly the same in Estonian. Locals like to hold their breath when crossing it and make a wish.
