Estonian Embassy Considered One of Washington DC's Most Beautiful Embassies

Travel website The Culture Trip recently published a list of the most beautiful embassies in Washington DC. Estonia appeared on the list alongside its Nordic neighbours Finland and Sweden. This morning Toomas Hendrik Ilves tweeted - 'I thought so when I picked it out, bought and renovated it 23 years ago.' Mr Ilves is obviously a man of good taste!
