Populated places in Estonia (officially: settlement units), are cities or settlement units of rural municipalities, but only cities have administrative functions. Settlement units are divided into settlements and urban regions (subdivisions of cities).
Officially there are five types of settlement units in Estonia:
- town/city (Estonian: linn)
- town without municipal status (Estonian: vallasisene linn)
- borough (Estonian: alev)
- small borough (Estonian: alevik)
- village (Estonian: küla)
