Estonia celebrates the 25th anniversary of the restoration of independence

Today we can be grateful that 25 years ago, on 20 August 1991, the Republic of Estonia restored its independence. Since this time Estonia has gone from strength to strength and is one of the few countries in the Euro Zone enjoying strong economic growth.

Head taasiseseisvumispäeva! Happy re-independence day! 

The national flag looks particularly beautiful flying atop Pikk Hermann Tower on this day.

Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand reaches out to Estonians at home and abroad, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the restoration of Estonian independence. You can watch her video message here:
