The Estonian National Atlas summarises Estonia’s cartographic heritage and illustrates our current knowledge in cartography. The atlas is a collection of about five hundred thematic maps of Estonia of different periods. The maps together with the included explanations help to understand our culture and history.
The maps are organised thematically under 30 titles, introducing, for instance, the development of the Estonian border, the height relations, climate, the origin, folklore and religion of Estonians, the birthplaces of the Estonian elite of the 1930s and the ‘magnet’ areas in Estonia. Each thematic chapter ends with a present-day map. The exhibition in the National Library of Estonia presents the most interesting maps in the atlas, gives an overview of all atlases published in Estonia, and introduces the national atlases of other countries.
