Estonia, officially the Republic of Estonia (in Estonian: Eesti or Eesti Vabariik) is a country in the north-east of the European Union, bordering with Russia from the east and Latvia from the south. The Baltic Sea separates it from Finland in the north by the Gulf of Finland and from Sweden in the west.
Estonia has a population of just 1.3 million inhabitants, but its territory is larger than Denmark or Holland. Almost 50% of the territory is covered with forest.
Estonia has been a member of the European Union since 1 May, 2004, and of NATO since 29 March, 2004.

Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia and an ideal holiday destination as well as a conference place.
It is situated on the northern coast of the country, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, 80 km south of Helsinki, east of Stockholm and west of Saint Petersburg.
Tallinn is ranked as a global city and has been listed among the top 10 digital cities in the world.
With half a million citizens (about 30 percent of the Estonia's 1.34 million residents live here), Tallinn is hardly a world metropolis.
However, short distances and low traffic are advantages to cherish. Whether you have only a few hours or a few days, you get to experience a lot.
Medieval Tallinn Old Town, which is on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is one of the best preserved Hanseatic town centres in the world. It is just a short walk away from the city's business centre with its skyscrapers, modern hotels, restaurants and shopping malls.
