Estonia...

Pilt 1

...has a population of just 1.3 million but is larger than Denmark or Netherlands

Being among the least densely populated countries in Europe, Estonia makes for a great nature and city break destination for those looking to stretch out their limbs and enjoy some peace, quiet, and solitude. It has 6 national parks, 3 of which have EUROPARC Federation recognition.

...is more than 50% forest.

It's fair to say that Estonians have a certain tree-hugging spirit. More than half of the country is covered by forested land and almost a quarter is protected by nature. As a result, Estonia has the 4th best air quality in the world. Also, approx. one quarter of the country is covered in marshes.

...is a Digital Society.

From voting to signing documents to doing taxes online, Estonia implements a fast, hassle-free and modern approach to doing errands. Free time is spent in nature and enjoying the wildlife diversity, as for example 380 species of birds are spotted in Estonia annually. Read more here.
