The French Institute in Estonia will happily take part in the Europe day, that foster peace and unity in Europe.
And needless to say we could do with a bit of Europe celebration these days ...!

Europe day marks the anniversary of the historical 'Schuman declaration'. At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe’s nations unthinkable.

To celebrate Europe day, the French Institute will open its doors to the public and offer you fun activities.
