  • And why not. The natural′nu value, the decoration of the pedestrian streets of the city. Whether it meets or sees off:). Looking where to go. In the Sun especially majestic and prazdničen. While not much natërt in different places, but fingers seem to be subjected to rub with hope for talent?!

  • In the year 2007 in the Centre of Pärnu, on the Rûitli Street in front of the building where the Editorial Office of the newspaper "Pârnusskij the postman ' appeared an interesting and very humane man sculpture with a newspaper in hand is an excellent example of urban sculpture. It is a monument to Johann Vol′demaru Ânnesenu-teacher, enlightener, founder and publisher of the first Estonian newspaper, the father of Estonian literature classics after the poetess Lydia Koidula. The monument was opened to the 150 anniversary from early editions of the newspaper, very quickly became popular not only in Estonia but also in Estonia, because of its materials were dedicated to personal problems and the expectations of the most masses of Estonians. The sculpture very harmoniously blended in the interiors of the street: cast in natural growth of a man with a small and a cane in one hand and a newspaper in the other as if stopped for a minute or two to read in the new issue of the newspaper is something very important and interesting. With the sculpture very often and with visible pleasure in photographed by tourists. And the people there is a belief that if you touch a page of the newspaper in hand Ânnesena, this day you will be reunited with good news.
