I think that the real treasure of Estonia is its nature. Not only that there are many geologically interesting sites containing unique fossils but, on top of that, these are surrounded by amazingly untouched nature. That all together makes life and work in Estonia much more pleasant.TTÜ provided modern equipment and inspiring environment for scientific work. Same as the whole country, the university is a dynamic organisation using all the latest technologies. The last but not least advantage of working there were colleagues - always kind and helpful.
