Estonia – my Country
Estonia is member of both European Union and NATO and has also signed the Kyoto protocols.
Estonian nature is rich of northern beauty: it has moody spring, short summer, colorful autumn and snowy winter. Almost half of the 45 227 sq. km of the Estonian territory is covered with forest and this area is growing. With some 1450 lakes (including the fifth biggest lake in Europe) and more than 7000 rivers, streams and drainage ditches Estonia is rich of cold crystal pure water. More than 1500 islands in the coastal waters enrich the country mainland.
Estonians share much of the thing called the Nordic Character: they love cross country skiing over the snowy fields, sauna with its contrasts of almost burning hot air inside the sauna room and freezing refreshment in the snow or water outside and spending the dark winter night next to the fireplace with living fire in it.
Estonia – a Nordic pearl. Come, taste, experience the Nordic refreshment, the one and only Estonia!
