ERR News - Although Estonia is popular among Finnish tourists for its cheap alcohol, there is no reason for the northern neighbors to buy ice cream or butter here, since it costs about twice as much as back home.
While at a local Alepa grocery store in Finland a liter of Ingman vanilla ice cream costs 1.45 euros, in Estonia the same product goes for 2.87, which is almost double the sum, wrote Postimees.
More expensive ice cream brands that sell for 2.29 euros per liter in Finland can cost up to 0.80 euros more in Estonia.

ERR News - KUMU, the Art Museum of Estonia, has asked the Ministry of Culture to bump up the museum's yearly budget by 250,000 euros, due to the growing cost of heating as the facility enters the open electricity market.

According to Sirje Helme, Director General of KUMU, an additional 304,874 euros is needed to cover the property's expenses.

A report indicated that in 2008, the ratio of Estonia’s spending on social protection benefits in GDP was the third lowest among the EU countries, reports Postimees Online.
The Report on Europe 2020’s Social Dimension stated that Estonia spent 15 percent of its GDP on social protection benefits. The EU average was nearly 25 percent in 2008, the highest in France (nearly 30 percent), Denmark and Sweden. According to the report, the share of people at risk of poverty has grown constantly during the past few years in Estonia and has reached nearly 20 percent.

The Tallinna Linnahall recreation center, which despite its closure in 2009 has served as a leisure spot for both locals and tourists, has not received enough support from the city government to keep its territory clean from garbage.

The Social Democratic Party's youth wing is not impressed by the education minister's reforms for free higher education, asserting that there is no such thing as a free lunch.

Not all university students who make it to the state-budget-funded slots will be able to fully complete the requirements of the curriculum.
