From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Populated places in Estonia

Populated places in Estonia (officially: settlement units[1]), are cities or settlement units of rural municipalities, but only cities have administrative functions. Settlement units are divided into settlements[2] and urban regions[3] (subdivisions of cities).

Officially there are five types of settlement units in Estonia:

  • town/city (Estonian: linn)
  • town without municipal status (Estonian: vallasisene linn)
  • borough (Estonian: alev)
  • small borough (Estonian: alevik)
  • village (Estonian: küla)
