THREE things we did not know about Estonia:
- Everyone knows that Skype was created in Tallinn … With about 400 startups altogether, Estonia boasts the highest ratio of startups to population in Europe including BOLT etc etc Estonia is the first country in the world to introduce on line voting, programming is taught in primary school and internet access is a human right.
- Almost 50% of Estonia is covered by forest, and in contrast to most countries where forests are decreasing in Estonia they’re actually expanding.
- Just like their Baltic neighbours, Estonia has two independence days. The first one is February 24, when the country was pronounced independent, and the second one is August 20, when that independence was regained.
