Estonia is a low-lying republic in northeastern Europe bounded by the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Sea in the north and west, Russia in the east and Latvia in the south. Estonia is also a former constituent republic of the USSR and consists largely of a marshy, undulating plain with numerous forests, lakes and wetlands and offshore islands.
Numerous rivers and streams drain the country, and almost one-quarter of the land is forested. Estonia’s capital and largest city and port are Tallinn. Over 70 percent of the population live in cities, towns or urban areas.
Agriculture is very important in Estonia, with the raising of livestock being the prime activity. The forests provide valuable sawn timber and raw materials for paper, pulp and furniture making and there are a modest marine and freshwater fishing industry — most industries based in the north. Tourism is a small but growing contributor to the economy.
