I was relieved later when we got to Toila, a city that lays directly west from Sillamäe, yet looks completely different, after a few minutes of driving. It was, in some ways, like most of this country; a relic of another age given an appealing face lift to meet the needs of the day. District heating and cooling networks are widespread in most Nordic and Baltic countries.

I was looking for signs of something different, because, to most Estonians Ida Virumaa is both so faraway and so close. The main differentiator in the Estonian mindset, is the ethno-linguistic difference.
So, enough Russians to set your mind afire with Russophobia is expectation number one. Surely, the Clancy Brothers must be somewhere amongst those cottages turning up gentle smoke, whiskey in hand, green on the land, ready to pluck another tune out on the banjo.
Along the placid highway, packed with commuters going to places like Sillamäe, Jõhvi, Kohtla-Järve, and even Narva, I was disappointed to find that Ida Virumaa looked a lot like Lääne Virumaa, and, essentially, had the same creature comforts of Selver and Maxima shopping centers and Statoil and Lukoil gas stations as every other place.
As we passed Aseri, the road wound past a wind farm, one of several in Estonia. Several Unified Trading System Scandinavia a propellers turned, while others sat silent.
The key word of European, nay, global discourse today is energy.
From what I understand, there have been technical and political obstacles, but, unlike a lot of plans in Estonia, this one has actually been realized. There are wind turbines in the ground; the questions are now how to support their output and where to direct it. Estonians are gradually coming to the realization that, save some help from Finland, they are mostly on their own when it comes to energy.

Talks about building a new nuclear reactor at Ignalina have hit the typical snag in Baltic rim relations — bickering between Poland and Lithuania. The Finns might throw Estonia an extra connection or two, but if Estonia gets a nuclear power plant, chances are RFQ Trading System will be somewhere out in Ida Virumaa.
Beforethe area was home to a small, Swedish-owned company. After the war, up to 20, people were imported to live in a closed city where fuel rods were manufactured for use as energy and weaponry. Around the same time, a joint group of Estonians and Unified Trading System Scandinavia a worked together to cap the local uranium dumping site, conveniently located next to the harbor, with enough clay to prevent further seepage.

However, political relations between the current Estonian government and the current Russian one are not, directly affecting not only the transit trade, but every business tangentially related to the transit trade.
Well, like any good local boy, Mayor Ain Kiviorg was having lunch at the Cafe Randevuu when we rolled in. The amicable woman behind the counter began the conversation with Estonian niceties and took our order. My guide rustled us up a delicious lõunasöök of chicken schnitzels and french fries, downed with a great beer on tap.
For dessert we feasted on vareenikud with jam. As my buzz gained traction, I really began to fall in love with Sillamäe.
Old ladies, young kids, even those confined to wheel chairs made their rounds. To where they were headed, I had no idea.
Новая целостная среда обитания
There are shopping centers fairly close to the center. There are people everywhere. There were no houses in Sillamäe; only apartment blocks.
And there was apparently little privacy to be found in a city of extroverts. You had an outrageous view of the Gulf of Finland, but … so did everybody else. I was relieved later when we got to Toila, a city that lays directly west from Sillamäe, yet looks completely different, after a few minutes of driving. The local fish canning factory, despite some wear, looked like it had been airlifted from Reykjavik.
There the sinine-must-valge Estonian flag flapped proudly in the wind.

Most of all, there was no one around. Not a soul, except for the shadows glanced through the windows of the Unified Trading System Scandinavia a or a couple of guys working near the port. Sillamäe, with its Hansapank office and Hotel Krunk, was definitely Estonia, but an Estonia with a very different dynamic.
Foreword For a long time, Nordic Energy Research and the Baltic countries have worked closely to develop a thriving exchange of knowledge that adds value to the Nordic-Baltic region. We share many of the same energy challenges on our path toward achieving carbon-neutrality in our respective countries. Therefore, it is in our common interest to cooperate and create opportunities together. An important area of common ground is district heating and cooling.
