Just to give you a scale, the coldest temperature ever measured in Estonia was −43,5 °C in 1940. The hottest temperature record in Estonia is +35,6 °C measured in 1992. However, normally we expect around +25 °C during the summer months and -10 °C in winter with thick snow from December to February. Sadly, the climate has changed here and the winters have become warmer. Every year can be different, so make sure you check the weather forecast before you arrive. What language do you speak in Estonia? We speak Estonian. Is it Estonian like Russian? Not at all and most of the locals that are younger than 35 years cannot speak Russian. Estonian language is one of the oldest languages in Europe and it originates from the Ural Mountains. Estonian is related to Finnish and Hungarian languages. While we hardly have any words in common with the Hungarians, we can normally guess what the Finnish are talking about. However, we cannot have a meaningful conversation with the Finns without switching into English or to another common language. There are other languages related to Estonian, which are spoken by small minority groups in Russia, such as Sami, Mari, Komi and others. Those languages are mostly fading, as there is a strong pressure for Russification.
