Did you know that the geographical center of Europe is located in the village of Mõnnuste in Saaremaa island? Or that Estonia won the first ever basketball match at the Olympics? These and another 98 fun facts can now be learnt from a new book, titled "Did you know that there are over 100 exciting, quirky, unique and important reasons to visit Estonia?", released by Solo Sokos Hotel Estonia.

The book provides a wider and more varied, but strictly fact-based overview of the country. The book is written in Estonian, English, Russian and Finnish.

Anu Soosaar, Managing Director of Sokotel AS that manages the hotel, said the book is their first gift to Estonia for its 100th anniversary, to be celebrated in 2018.

"It collates things we should be proud of and share with the world," she said. "The format allows it to be translated into other languages and add new volumes, as each day brings new and exciting stories."

Editors Peep Ehasalu and Jussi-Pekka Aukia added that the book is a good gift idea for a business partner or a friend abroad, but should also be of interest to Estonians themselves, to see what Estonia has achieved and continues to achieve.
