JaaniÃµhtu (Midsummer Eve â 23 June) and JaanipÃ¤ev (St Johnâs Day â 24 June) are one of the most important days in the Estonian calendar. JaanipÃ¤ev with the longest day of the year with nights that seem to be almost non-existent hold special significance for Estonians.
Enjoy this time of the year: head JaanipÃ¤eva kÃµigile (have a good JaanipÃ¤ev!) :)
Zhihong Sun, the first doctoral student from China defending her PhD thesis in Estonian University of Life Sciences, would not hesitate to recommend experiencing Estonian academic atmosphere and studying and living in Estonia, âI obtained not only scientific knowledge, but also high independent work ability with high quality science literacyâ, she says.
Study in Estonia had the pleasure to invite the international degree and exchange students, professors as well as coordinators from universities and tutors to celebrate together the end of academic year 2012/2013
A tip and recommendation for the weekend: the HeadRead (good lines) festival started in Tallinn featuring Estonia's literary heavyweights as well as guests from the UK, Russia, Finland, Italy, Ireland, Sweden and Belarus. The fifth annual festival has brought British playwright Tom Stoppard and Finnish writer Sofi Oksanen, as well as many others, to Tallinn, and will run until the end of the week.
