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

Understand

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.

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.
