  • The Estonian language s a finno-ugric language - resembles most to Finnish and is different from Latvian and Russian language.
  • Everyone in tourism speaks good English and often German, Finnish, Russian and Swedish too!
  • Estonia was occupied by the Soviets for decades but Estonia sees itself as more influenced by Nordic tastes and traditions - Scandinavia with a twist.
  • Occupation by Germans, Swedes and Russians has influenced the architecture of cathedrals, cobbled streets, manor houses and palaces.
  • Great food is everywhere and you can even eat marinated bear here!
  • In winter it gets very cold and has plenty of snow.
  • Roads are traffic jam free.
  • Estonia is almost 50% forest.
  • Tallinn is the medieval capital and by far the biggest city, with a population of around 400,000.
  • Estonia has over 1,500 islands.
