Where I am from

Post by PowerPack on Sat Jul 12, 2014 9:18 am

In progress of one convo in IRC i tought it might be fun to write little something about my homeland, Estonia.

As far as i know there might be more RL estonians in eUSA but i know 2 so far me and Mart Klaar. So ill write a little introduction about Estonia.

Our flag : Coat of Arms :

First some wiki style facts about Estonia

Estonia Listeni/ɛˈstoʊniə/[10][11] (Estonian: Eesti) Estonian pronunciation: [ˈeːsti], officially the Republic of Estonia (Estonian: Eesti Vabariik), is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe. It is bordered to the north by the Gulf of Finland, to the west by the Baltic Sea, to the south by Latvia (343 km), and to the east by Lake Peipus and Russia (338.6 km).[12] Across the Baltic Sea lies Sweden in the west and Finland in the north. The territory of Estonia covers 45,227 km2 (17,462 sq mi), and is influenced by a humid continental climate.

Estonia is a democratic parliamentary republic divided into fifteen counties, with its capital and largest city being Tallinn. With a population of 1.3 million, it is one of the least-populous member states of the European Union, Eurozone and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The Estonians are a Finnic people, and the official language, Estonian, is a Finno-Ugric language closely related to Finnish, and distantly to Hungarian and to the Sami languages.

A developed country with an advanced, high-income economy,[13] Estonia is a member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. It ranks very high in the Human Development Index,[6] and performs favorably in measurements of economic freedom, civil liberties, education, and press freedom (third in the world in 2012[14]). Estonia is often described as one of the most wired countries in Europe,[15][16] and is ranked 20th in the UN e-Government Readiness Index.

The location :


Now Estonia is a small country just about 45,227 km2 and living on it about  1,315,819 people.

Estonians are kinda "keep to myself" people and handle all they are being thrown at, calm and could people they say. Ofcourse there are exceptions :) and when you get to them - they are actually very nice people... well most of them :)

Nature here is pretty amazing even to me, who i live here everyday. Here are some examples :






In Estonia tech is everywhere, IT is very well developed in Estonia We use ID cards (that can be used for digital signature and such) Most of the places are covered with wifi in one or another way.

Some famous stuff even has came from Estonia. Like Skype for example.

Have heard lot of people (mostly tourist) say that Estonia has the nicest girls :P
Ill give you some examples then.. boys might like it.




Carmen Cass is from Estonia if anyone knows here :)


There is a lot of different people so all are not pretty and what is pretty that is kinda individual anyway.

For the start this might be enough. There is a lot of wonderful things in Estonia. I could not possibly write about all of them. If you like what you see google more and come visit our country :)

Hope you enjoy it ;)
