    Estonia was culturally part of Scandinavia from the Nordic Bronze Age until the Viking age. Today they are mostly atheist (like Scandinavians) with clearly Nordic cultural aspects, and they do seems to have got some Germanic admixture. Therefore they should be considered part of Northern Europe, but kinda borderline.

    There was Nordic Bronze Age culture also in Estonia, seriously?

    Today they are mostly atheist (like Scandinavians)
    Estonia - 45% irreligious, Russia - 43% irreligious. The same!

    North Eastern. Religiously they were Catholic(just Lithuania now) and Lutheran. There's a wee bit of overlap as far Estonia is concerned but they're Finns overall. They just happen to neighbor Baltic states.

    I have not been to the Baltic states , would like to get there one day , I find them interesting.

    As for OP , my impression about them is mix of Northern Euro and East Euro.
    I feel they are different to Russians and from what I have seen to my eyes they look different to, apparently Lithiuanians are one of the fairest Europeans.
    I can see how they would have quite a bit East Euro influence culturally from Russia, Poland ... but I think in many ways they have some similiar influence from Finns and Scandinavia. Maybe Estonians are closer to Finns culturally.

    Not really typically Eastern Europeans , partly yes but they have many Northern Euro traits , they are not the same as Russians.
