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:

  • city (est: linn)
  • cities without municipal status (est: vallasisene linn)
  • town (est: alev)
  • small town (est: alevik)
  • village (est: küla)
