In southeast Estonia, in the municipality of Värska Parish, lies a peculiar border irregularity. A small piece of Russian land called the “Saatse Boot”—so called because of its boot shaped intrusion— juts into Estonian territory as the Russian-Estonian border twists and turns through the lake and forest landscape of this region. It so happens that this piece of foreign land lies directly between two small Estonian villages—Lutepää and Sesniki—and traditionally, the only way to reach Sesniki from Lutepää, and vice-versa, is to go through Saatse Boot, that involves crossing the international border twice.
