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.

Tana on Võidupüha / Today is Victory Day
Today Estonia celebrates Victory Day. 97 years ago the last decisive battles took place ending the Estonian War of Independence. Head Võidupüha!
On this day I feel extremely proud of my great uncles for their contribution to the war effort and achieving Estonia's independence.
