What's going on in Scandinavia, North Atlantic, Baltic States and Scotland?
So what is happening in those barely populated areas linked to the North Atlantic ocean?

Google News app expanded to the Baltic countries, yay!

Except that the sources for Estonia are in Russian only, primarily featuring Sputnik fake news mill. Sources for Latvia are in English only. Sources for Lithuania are in Lithuanian (good), but you can't get e.g. Finnish news (dealbreaker), says this article https://tehnika.postimees.ee/4489140/google-news-pakub-eestlastele-ebameeldiva-ullatuse

Note: I personally never have taken a look at Google News app or site or whatever it is. I have browser bookmarks instead.

It doesn't look too bad but I don't really see the point of it.

@Frenzie Awesome. How did it go? (I've never been to Belgium. The only EU capital I have been to was Frankfurt.)

I had to be one street over. The picture I took on my phone didn't turn out very well but I'll post it in a bit. ;)

Just the flag indicates something (and is there the EU flag next to it as it should be, just behind the tree?) and it's nearly a miracle you got it on camera. It's an as unimpressive building as the one next to it...

Yes, the tree is hiding it.

For an unimpressive country.
You don't need a more impressive embassy, it won't give you more EU funds.
Our embassy in Brussels is a shithole just like that and I think that's too much money spent with Belgians. A tent would be enough.
A matter of attitude.

If I recall correctly the Estonian pavilion at the World Expo in Hanover (2000) was pretty impressive actually.

Edit: I recall correctly https://steemit.com/architecture/@refuel/world-expo-architecture-hannover-expo-2000-estonian-pavilion

I wonder how the Dutch pavillion's doing.
