More about Estonia

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Estonia, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Estonia borders the Gulf of Riga and the Middle Baltic Sea in the west, the Gulf of Finland in the north, Russia in the east (the border runs partly through Lake Peipus) and Latvia in the south.

Estonia is the northernmost state of the Baltic republics and, as part of the Eastern European lowlands that was shaped by the Ice Age, has only slight differences in altitude. The average height is 50 m above sea level. Geologically and geomorphologically, the surface can be divided into two areas: Northern Estonia, which is characterized by glacial lakes, Osers and drumlins, including the western mainland and island region with a thin, barren soil cover on a Silurian limestone table, which forms a cliff to the Gulf of Finland (Glint, up to 56 m high) and reaches 166 m above sea level in the Pantifer (Pandivere) mountain range, as well as the topographically more varied southern Estonian moraine hill country in the area of ​​the Baltic ridge on red sandstone deposits with the mountain ranges of Sakala (up to 145 m above sea level)), Odenpäh (Otepää; in Kuutsemägi 217 m above sea level) and Hahnhof (Haanja), which forms the highest point in Estonia with Munaberg (Suur Munamägi) at 318 m above sea level. In between, in the area of ​​the Devonian sandstone, lies the Central Estonian plain, which is only 20–50 m high and stretches from the Pärnu Bay over the Wirzsee (Võrtsjärv) to the Pskower and Peipussee basins. The largest of the total of 1,521 Estonian islands are Saaremaa (German Ösel), Hiiumaa (German Dagö), Muhu (German Moon) and Vormsi (German Worms). – Estonia is rich in lakes and rivers; Lakes and reservoirs take up about 5% of the area. The Peipus Lake with the Pskov Lake, which only belongs to a small extent to Estonia, and the Wirz Lake are important for fishing and inland shipping. The most important rivers are the Narwa (border river to Russia) and the Pärnu. In winter, the sea near the coast freezes over for a short time.

Climate

In terms of climate, Estonia lies in the transition area between Central, Northern and Eastern Europe. In the north of Estonia the climate is milder due to the influence of the Baltic Sea, while it becomes more continental towards the south and south-east (difference between coastal and inland areas in January 4.9 ° C). The summer is moderately warm. The warmest month is July (average temperature 16 ° C in the northwest and 17 ° C in the southeast). The first frosts appear in October. The coldest month is February (an average of −3 ° C on the island of Saaremaa and −7 ° C in the central part of the country). With an annual rainfall of 550–650 mm, the climate is relatively humid. Check a2zcamerablog to see Estonia Travel Guide.

Vegetation

Estonia belongs to the mixed and deciduous forest zone of the cool temperate latitudes. Due to the calcareous soil and the temperate maritime climate, the west and northwest are more species-rich than the rest of the area. The landscape is dominated by meadows – often interspersed with bushes – heaths and forests. If there is no topsoil above the limestone plates, dry grass strips interspersed with juniper appear. Some of the river plains and coastal areas have extensive reed banks, especially in Matsalu (Matzal) Bay and in the Muhu Strait. The whole of Estonia is rich in bogs and swamps (20% of the territory), some of which are protected, some of which are used for peat extraction. The forests (spruce forests with birch, linden, aspen, oak and pine are characteristic) cover about 53% of the country.

Conservation: A number of national parks protect plants and animals in their natural environment, including Vilsandi (Filsand, 106.9 km 2) on the west coast of Saaremaa (protection of sea and water birds), Matsalu (Matzal, 397 km 2), Soomaa (370 km 2) northeast of Pärnu, Karula (103 km 2) in the south and Lahemaa (440 km 2) in the north of the country.
