Paldiski [1] is a town (population: 4,000) on the shore of Baltic Sea, in Harjumaa county, NW Estonia.

Bank and Pakri lighthouse, situated about 5 km from Paldiski centrum to North

Understand[edit]

During Soviet times and early years of independent Estonia, until up to 1994, the city was a “closed city”, i.e., off-limits to foreigners, non-resident Soviet citizens, even non-resident Estonians themselves, because of its military importance. Today, it’s open to everyone and deserves a visit by those interested in the grey-world of Soviet Union (Paldiski and the Pakri peninsula are covered with abandoned bunkers, piles of unidentifiable junk and various military debris).

The scenes taking place in a location introduced to the audience as “somewhere in the former Soviet Union” in the film Lilya 4-Ever were actually shot in Paldiski.
