Tallinn. The Golden Opportunity

Episode Summary

We are in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, a small North European country, which for the first time emerged as an independent state right after the Great War. This is a story of a small Baltic nation which seized the opportunity to become independent of two great European powers, Germany and Russia. Tallinn was the biggest city in the area at that time. Its strategic importance played a crucial role in Estonian War of Independence.
