  Estonia by Leipzig
by Leipzig

Estonia is situated on the eastern Baltic coast and borders Russia and Latvia. My friend and I travelled from Latvian border to Saaremaa, where we saw the very south of the island. The island attracted with rarely frequented beaches, cozy small villages, windmills and forests. The next day we visited the capital Tallinn and camped the night near Peipus Lake. The third day we spent unwillingly in Narva, a frontier town.
I was very impressed that you find internet cafés in almost every corner. The fact that in Estonia everyone has the right to have internet access makes this country one of the most progressive in Europe.

The monetary unit is the Estonian Kroon (EEK).

The official language is Estonian. Ukrainian, Finnish and Russian are widely spoken and English is spoken by younger people.

The capital is Tallinn.
