There are no many holidays to celebrate in Estonia. The ones we have here are mostly international or ones involving our independency! Nonetheless, we are always happy here to get a day off when a bank holiday appears and trying to take it as a little surprise. There are 12 such 'surprises' a year!
Since the 16th century, Estonia has been a predominantly protestant (Lutheran) country. Baltic Germans built most of the country’s churches. Up until the 19th century, the church was the only source of education in the countryside and few villages are without an architecturally impressive church at its centre.
