An event to describe 1,000 years of Estonian history in a nutshell

The Estonishing Evenings series returns to Tallinn, this time giving a humorous overview of Estonian history.

Organised in partnership with Estonian World, the Estonishing Evenings series is an English-speaking evening hosting different speakers expressing their viewpoints and experiences on hot topics and matters concerning both the locals and non-natives living in Estonia.

The first event took place in early May and discussed how to settle in a new country. The second one talked about bridging the Estonian and expat cultural norms in a workplace.

The third event, titled “1,000 years of Estonian history in a nutshell”, will give a short, slightly tongue-in-cheek, overview of the country’s history. A distinguished Tallinn-based tour guide, Heli Jürisson, will present a quick and witty rendition of a very informal history lesson.

The event will also feature a quiz for the first time – the topic is, naturally, Estonia, covering various historical as well as modern aspects about this country.

The event will again take place at the Erinevate Tubade Klubi (the Club of Different Rooms) at the Telliskivi Creative City in Tallinn on 27 September at 19:00.

The evening will be moderated by Silver Tambur, the Editor-in-Chief of Estonian World.
