Saaremaa

By: N/A

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Tallinn, Kirjastus" Eesti Raamat": 1970

Seller ID: 009990


The largest island of Estonia, located in the Baltic Sea. In the villages there are still stone fences and houses, some with thatched roofs. Roman snails, rare butterflies, and beautiful orchids can be found here. In 1710 it became a part of tsarist Russia. Important as a battle scene in WWI and WWII, it was finally freed in 1991. Since this 148-page book is entirely in Estonian, I will say no more. Front and back covers show stone buildings. No writing or damage. View more info
