From bbc.co.uk August 26, 2011:
"When Estonians were recently asked whether religion played an important part in their life, only 20% said yes. It suggests the Baltic country is, statistically, the least religious country in the world.
"The windy streets of Tallinn offer a misleading picture of Estonia's religiosity.
"Spires decorate the old town, bells ring out on Sundays and song emanates from churches as visitors walk in and out.
"A closer look reveals that many of these visitors are tourists.
"When I went to the city's large Lutheran Dome Church one Sunday almost all of the 70 congregants turned out to have travelled from the Netherlands.
"A handful of people standing at the back - 15 at the most - were the sum total of regular Estonian church-goers.
"As the dean of the church, Arho Tuhkru, explains, it is not a new problem: "People believe, but they do not want to belong to the Church.
"We do not have such a tradition where the whole family comes to the church.""...fewer than one in five Estonians say any religion plays an important part in their lives.
