Photos from Estonia
The modern name of Estonia ('Eesti Vabariik' in Estonian) is thought to originate from the Roman historian Tacitus who described a people called the Aestii. Over the centuries, the Estonian were subjected to Danish, Teutonic, Swedish and Soviet rule until they regained their independence on August 20, 1991.
