Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog showcases all the things I love about Estonia and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

Pärnu's Ice Festival
They say you learn something new every day and indeed I have today. I was completely unaware of Pärnu's ice festival but now I have read up on it, it sounds like a winter wonderland and I can't wait to go! The festival is full of exciting events and things made out of snow and ice, including sculptures, an ice bar and restaurant and ice cinema all illuminated with thousands of decorative lights. A good article explaining what it is can be found on the "Visit Estonia" website. http://www.visitestonia.com/en/parnu-ice-festival-estonias-biggest-winter-family-festival
