Supilinn (Soup Town) in Tartu

Supilinn is a historic district located in the northwest of Tartu and it, actually, means Soup Town. Due to its many gardens,  its residents gave the streets vegetable/fruit names such as Meloni (Melon), Marja (Berry) or Kartuli (Potato). And so if you mixed all the streets in a big pot, you would get a soup, hence its name – Supilinn.
