Sillamäe is one of the most enigmatic towns in the province of Ida-Virumaa. In the Soviet era, its existence was deliberately hidden by the authorities, on account of the uranium enrichment activity carried on here. The second half of the 20C saw Sillamäe grow rapidly, and today it is home to many industrial enterprises. Its straight avenues lined by neo-Classical residences and the seaside area lend the town a certain charm.
