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.

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.
