Sillamäe linn - asub Ida-Virumaal mis oli tuntud suletud tööstuslinna


Sillamäe (town)

Sillamäe is located near the Gulf of Finland, on the estuary of the Sõtke river. The industrial city was ‘created’ in 1946 when it was decided to establish a metallurgy plant there that reprocesses oil shale ore to get uranium oxides. Due to this industry, the city was closed off for a long time.

Today, you have the possibility to examine the buildings from the post-war period of Stalin, classical style avenues, and museums. Sillamäe Museum and the exhibition of the Sillamäe Museum branch in the Sillamäe Cultural Centre offer town excursions on request.
