Cultural Relations

Cultural cooperation between Estonia and France is very active. Estonian culture in France is represented by the cultural adviser of the embassy, who has been in office since 2007, and a branch of the Estonian Institute operated in Paris from 2001-2009. There are also a number of friendship societies at the local level that regularly help to organise events that introduce Estonia. Excellent partners in introducing the Estonian culture are the twin cities of Estonia (Võru’s twin Chambrey-les Tours, Saue’s twin Quincy-Sous-Sénart, Maardu’s twin Seyne-sur-Mer, Tallinn City Centre’s twin Carcassonne), the National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilisations (INALCO), the France-Estonie Society and the honorary consuls of Estonia in France.
