Estonia Introduction




Estonia is a European nation that regained its independence in 1991, after more than 50 years of forced annexation to the Soviet Union.
Estonia lies on the Baltic Sea in northern Europe.

It had been independent from 1918 until 1940, when the Soviet Union occupied it and made it one of the 15 republics of the Soviet Union.

A Short Background

After centuries of Swedish and Russian rule, Estonia attained independence in 1918. Forcibly incorporated into the USSR in 1940, it regained its freedom in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Since the last Russian troops left in 1994, Estonia has been free to promote economic and political ties with Western Europe.
