France and Estonia have enjoyed close relations since Estonia’s first declaration of independence in 1918. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established when Estonia joined the League of Nations in 1921, and bilateral relations flourished up to the Second World War. On Estonia’s second declaration of independence in 1991, diplomatic relations were immediately re-established. The creation of the Estonian Institute in Paris in 2001, Estonia’s accession to the European Union in 2004 and its adoption of the euro in 2011 marked further cultural, political and economic milestones that have brought the two countries significantly closer.
