Norwegian Evening

On December 8 the ESU Estonia members met Per-Otto Breivik, a Norwegian businessman, the managing director and CEO of the Permarine AS. We had a lovely talk on different topics in a friendly atmosphere in front of the fireplace. We enjoyed our conversation a lot, as well as a glass of wine, some fruit and gingerbread biscuits. The ESU Estonia would like to thank Mr.Breivik for hosting a pre-Christmas event and meeting.

KGB Museum

On November 30 the ESU Estonia members visited the Sokos Viru Hotel and the KGB Museum. We met at the Bogart Bar for a glass of wine, some snacks and a talk. The manager, Mr. Jarvi told us a little bit about the history of the hotel, which is still the biggest hotel in Estonia, and showed us two renovated hotel rooms with a fantastic view on the Old Town.The excursion to the Museum started on the ground floor, where we were given tickets with two vouchers on some drinks in any hotel bar and cafe. The guide told young people and reminded the older ones what life was like in Estonia more than thirty years ago. We saw quite many artifacts of those days in the Museum. We enjoyed not only a lively excursion but a wonderful view from the 23rd floor on our beautiful city.

On November 21, the members of the ESU of Estonia had the honour to attend an event at the Estonian Parliament. In the beginning, a tour guide showed us a model of the building and took us to some different rooms like the one where the members of the Parliament meet. In the meantime, the guide provided us some complete information as to the building and its history. To conclude, the guests met the speaker Ene Ergma, who basically told all of us about several Estonian monetary, educational and political maters. The people there could also ask her many questions. The visit was very interesting so we hope we will have another chance to make a similar one in the future.
