I heard that Canadians are not "blacklisted" from the list of favoured nations for residing in Estonia for some time. Would be good if someone could check this.
- Years ago there was a problem with Canada causing displease in Estonia, partly because of treatment, if I remember correctly, of our president during unofficial trip to this American nation visiting local Estonian community. Sharp words were spoken by him them also. I don't know if Canada - at least as NATO ally and perhaps greatest 2 World War refuge - was since restored in its rightful position. This seems likely. But personally, I am not going to start looking for more up-to-date information. Please do it yourself and make corrections if necessary. Bete
Fixed to the Euro?
How could the Estonian currency be fixed to the Euro since 1993, since (I think) the Euro is not that old? --Jonboy 08:15, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
- IIRC it was briefly fixed to the German mark, and then migrated to use the euro currency basket even before it became a physical currency. Jpatokal 19:12, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
- Thanks. That's what Wikipedia indicates, though the date is implied to be 1992. I'll change the article to clear it up. --Jonboy 09:04, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
- The Kroon was pegged to the EMU.
