Votic or Votian a Finnic language closely related to Estonian. It is
spoken in Krakolye and Luzhitsy, two villages in the Kingisepp district
of St. Petersburg, Russia, by about 20 people, all of whom are elderly.
Efforts are currently being made to revive Votic with some lessons in
the language in one school. It appears that most younger Votes are
not all that interested in the language though.
