The Estonia 100 centenary celebrations will begin already on 16 April of this year when we mark one hundred years from unification of the lands settled by Estonians. On this occasion, a group of professional hikers will symbolically erase the border between the former Governorate of Estonia and Governorate of Livonia. A total of 18 different hiking trails of varying length and difficulty have been marked along this former border, and organisers are inviting the first 3000 hikers registered to take part in this unique event. Registration will open on March 20th. The trails will lead to a total of 9 community centres where participants will be greeted with hot soup and a celebration. The opening event and information about the upcoming Estonia100 programme will be broadcast on Estonian Television throughout the day.
