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 aims to promote Estonian news, history and culture and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

Today is World Poetry Day (üleilmne luulepäev)
One of Estonia's most beloved poems is Juhan Liivi's 'Ta lendab mesipuu poole' (he flies towards the beehive).
