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 the oldest person of the Republic of Estonia, Marta Kivi, celebrates her 107th birthday. Being older than the republic itself, she is still going strong and is an inspiration to us all. Marta was born in Kakuna, Saare county in 1912. Happy Birthday Marta!
