THE STORY. AT A GLANCE.
This tiny former Soviet republic is made up of beaches, lakes, and forests. You will also find the prettiest medieval towns. Estonia’s combination of old and new is remarkable – its capital Tallinn is the best-preserved medieval city in Northern Europe. At the same time, Estonia with a population of 1.3 million, located to the north of Latvia and across the Baltic Sea from Finland, is arguably the most advanced digital society in the world.
INSIDE OUT. JEWISH ESTONIA.
It was not until the late 19th century that Estonia developed a Jewish community of any size. Both the Nazi and Soviet eras saw the near-obliteration of this community. In spite of this, Jews played a crucial role in Estonia’s two periods of democratic independence, from 1919 until the 1930s, and since 1991. Estonia’s synagogues were destroyed during and after World War II. There is now a modern synagogue in Tallinn, dedicated in 2007 — the first synagogue built in the country since the 19th century.
