Hiiumaa Military museum is located in Tahkuna, Hiiumaa. The museum exposition covers Hiiumaa’s coastal defence structures, armaments, and ammunition.

In front of the main building there is a replica of a part of the Soviet border strip – a three meter wide raked sand strip with a barbed wire fence. Behind fence is an entrance to a civil protection shelter.

At the back corner of the yard is a storage lot for machinery. There you can see military vehicles like the ZIL-157, GAZ-69A, UAZ-469 and the LUAZ-967M. Scattered in the yard are armored personnel carriers BTR-70 and BRDM-2 and a coast guard boat. Among the items of the out-door exposition are railway trams used in the construction of the beach batteries, floating mines, aircraft bombs, a torpedo and others. In the backyard of the museum is a reconstructed 45 mm Soviet anti-tank artillery position. Behind the main building are towering radio masts and a radio antenna.

In the main building of the museum is an exhibition in five rooms. Marine observation radars used by the coast guard until 2005 are still at their original spots.

Detta är en översikt av Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
