Estonia for Dummies – Part 1


This is more informative than entertaining (or both) post for ‘beginners’ with no knowledge about Estonia and Estonians. Far away from Estonia I met people who don’t know much about this small Baltic nation. So I’ve decided to do something about it, if this post somehow reaches at least one ‘beginner’ mission will be accomplished. This is not a complete list, there will be Part 2 later.
