estonia independence day event

 

Estonian Independence Day (Iseseisvuspäev) is a public holiday in Estonia, always celebrated on 24 February. It is Estonia's National Day. On 24 February 1918, Estonia issued a declaration of independence from the new Soviet Russia, which was followed by a war with the Soviets to maintain Estonian liberty.

On 2 February 1920, the war ended with the Tartu Peace Treaty which guaranteed Estonia's independence for all time. The Soviets went on to break this pact, however, and Estonia was under Soviet control for 75 years. Estonians celebrate their Independence Day with a parade, church services, speeches, and concerts in the capital city, Tallinn.
