hey, i'm from Estonia
-it's in Balticum as Lithuania
-guess who brought Skype to you? ;)
-it's very small country with not too friendly people
-Our country boasts the 3000-year-old crater of an iron meteorite that influenced the religions and customs of the Baltic Sea region.
-The Kunda and Pärnu settlements are older than most cradles of the European civilisation.
-Our language contains about a thousand words that date back to the last ice age
-Our capital has one of the most seamless wireless Internet networks in the world.
- about 90% of our population pay their taxes via Internet...
-The largest collection of wheel crosses in the world.
-Estonians have one of the biggest needs for personal space in the world – a good example of that being settlement density that is 4 times less compared to Denmark and 12 times less compared to The Netherlands.
-Estonia is small, both by area and population, but it has more than a hundred historical parishes, each one with its own traditional clothing.
-The joint choir of the General Song Festival has the biggest number of singers in the world
-Tallinn 2011 – for a year the Estonian capital city will hold the title of European Capital of Culture.
-Estonia ranks 3rd in the world press freedom index, following Norway and Iceland (Reporters Without Borders, 2007).
-The first daily newspaper was published in Tallinn as early as in 1675 (in England – 1702).
-Estonia is egalitarian – 51% of engineers and scientists are women (European Union average being 29%).
-The Estonian sense of humour is dark and very self-ironic reminiscent of English and Finnish humour.
-Tallinn – home of the Christmas tree. A Christmas tree on Tallinn Town Hall Square was first mentioned in 1441. The custom then was to dance around the tree and celebrate, and later burn it. Until now a small French town called Selestat has claimed itself to be the cradle of the Christmas tree, but their documents are almost a century younger (1521).

(i read that, Dennmark's flag is the oldest in the world(didn't know that) but the inspiration of the flags' design came from Estonia)
-Tallinn – Danish town. According to a legend the Danish got their national flag (Dannebrog) from here. It was thrown down to them from the skies at a decisive moment during a battle fought against Estonians on the 15th of June, 1219. The small coat of arms of Tallinn – a white cross on a red background – recalls those old days.

Actually. Skype was invented by a DANISH and a swedish entrepreneur. They later sold it to someone (i don't really know who) for over 2 billion dollars. :)

Skype was founded in 2003 by the Swedish entrepreneur Niklas Zennström and a Dane Janus Friis.The Skype software was developed by Estonian developers Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu and Jaan Tallinn. The idea was theirs, but estonians developed it. and they sold it to e-bay and there were much commotion about that. that's the story ;)
