TALLINN /The Baltic Times - 

- An organization representing the Estonian community abroad has called for the Estonian government and parliament to pay more attention to issues concerning Estonian expats abroad, establish the day of commemorating the great escape as a national holiday, as well as include refugee topics in school curricula.

Pillerkaar couples NATO 4 28 18

Pillerkaar took to the road on the last weekend in April for the 2018 NATO Festival in Norfolk, VA.

That's what the title of the popular children's (and everybody's) song "Sauna taga tiigi ääres" means. So what did the characters Miku and Manni look like? Has anybody illustrated this tale?... They were catching konna/poegi (tadpoles, pollywogs, literally "frog young") lõhki/löödud panniga – with a old, beaten up, cracked pan. (In the original rhyme, written in 1901 by Hermann Julius Schmalz, they were catching "ühe poti tükiga".)

President Kaljulaid returned to the U.S. just two weeks after the April 3rd summit between President Trump and the Baltic presidents. Her schedule for this visit brought her back to Washington, DC and then took her to Arizona for the prestigious Sedona Forum hosted by the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.

The Reform Party parliamentary group submitted a bill to the Riigikogu on May 9th, that would lift the requirement for Estonian citizens by birth to relinquish their Estonian citizenship when they have obtained the citizenship of another EU or European Economic Area (EEA) member state, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Switzerland.

Seen on the auditorium wall of Narva Eesti Gümnaasium: Head põrumist! But why?


I was initially baffled by this soov , wish of sorts, posted on the wall of the aula (auditorium) of Narva's only Estonian language school, the Narva Eesti Gümnaasium. A gümnaasium used to be synonymous with the secondary school level of education, but many Estonian gymnasiums today are comprised of both põhi/kooli level (grades 1-9), as well as high school level (grades 10-12), in various wings of the same building. 

Dear crafter,


I am inviting you to join the 5th Craft Camp which will be held from 8th –14th July 2018 in Olustvere, Estonia. The camp is organized by UT Viljandi Culture Academy Estonian Native Crafts Department which is known as a great center for professional handicraft teaching.
