Estonia regained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Events took place in the National Library in the centre of the city from Friday 3rd August to Saturday 11th August 2001. As well as the excellent programmes of films from member countries, entertainment from top choirs and orchestras, a regular video diary of events and lots of good company ... there were organised outings to:
