Estonia, officially the Republic of Estonia (in Estonian: Eesti or Eesti Vabariik) is a country in the north-east of the European Union, bordering with Russia in the east and Latvia in the south. The Baltic Sea separates it from Finland in the north and from Sweden in the west.
Estonia has a population of just 1.3 million inhabitants, but its territory is larger than that of Denmark or the Netherlands. Almost 50% of the territory is covered in forests.
Estonia has been a member of the European Union since 1 May, 2004, and of NATO since 29 March, 2004.
