Map cards: Estonia

Postmarked Saue, dated 18 March 2009.

Estonia is bordered by Finland across the Gulf of Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Russia.  Its name is thought to have originated with Tacitus who described a people called Aestii.  The Estonian language has many similarities with Finnish.  The capital and largest city is Tallinn.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
