“Tallinns’s new housing estates. The earliest of them, Mustamäe, was started in 1962. Now, nearly a quarter of the city’s population lives here. The new complex of the Tallinn Polytechnic and the Chemistry Institute are situated here. Väike-Õismäe, another new housing development, is quickly growing.”
