Tallinn. Estonian Institute exhibition at the Parliament

17.01.2005

On 17 January at 2.30 p.m. the Estonian Institute opens an exhibition at the Parliament Building. It offers an overview of publications and other informative material about Estonia printed over the years.

Illustrated colour publications reflect different aspects of Estonian life, from the answers to 12 questions to the jolly pictures about the peculiar features of Estonians. In the course of 15 years the Institute has issued about one hundred different publications, from fact sheets to exhibition catalogues.

In addition to the printed matter, the Institute also has an essayistic internet encyclopaedia www.estonica.info and a cultural calendar with data about Estonian cultural events, www.kultuur.info. Estonica has around one million visits a month and is linked to over 5000 pages.

The informative materials are primarily spread via Estonian embassies abroad, but they are always available at the Institute as well. In order to better introduce Estonia and organise cultural exchange, the Institute has four branches abroad: in Finland (founded in 1995), Hungary (1998), Sweden (1999) and France (2001). In 'exporting' Estonian culture, they are at the same time the first place where a foreigner can get a view of Estonian books, reference books, films and music, and where the teachers and learners of Estonian language and culture come together.
