Estonia is located on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea. It borders the Gulf of Finland and is found between Latvia and Russia. It is the most northerly of the three Baltic Republics. An incredibly flat country, the highest point in Estonia is Suur Munamägi, or Egg Mountain, located in the southeastern part of the country, reaching 318 m (1,043 ft) in height.

The geography of Estonia has been heavily influenced by the countless lakes found around the country. It is estimated that there are more than 1,400 natural and artificial lakes in Estonia, the largest of which is Lake Peipus. The area of Lake Peipus is 3,555 square kilometres (1,373 square miles) and is found on the border between Estonia and Russia.  Another important feature of Estonia’s geography is forests which cover approximately 18,000 square kilometres (6,950 square miles) of the country’s area.

Situated on Estonia’s northern coast is Tallinn, the country’s capital. With a rich history, Tallinn’s Old Country has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
