Paldiski, the center of the Lääne-Harju municipality, has been an attractive investment area for centuries. Paldiski’s excellent geographical and logistical location, the existing infrastructure – with its potential for future development, the availability of labor, and the close cooperation between the municipality and the business sector provide solid ground for turning this region into a well-known and recognized site for business and living by the Baltic Sea.
Paldiski is a small town in Northern Estonia, 50 kilometers from Tallinn, with 3,800 residents. By territory, it is the second largest city in Estonia, covering the Pakri peninsula, the islands of Suur-Pakri and Väike-Pakri, and the surrounding sea area. The most densely populated part of the city is located on only 5.4 square kilometers of the area’s total 102 square kilometers. The city is well connected to the rest of Estonia, by both road and rail. The two ports, Paldiski South Harbor and Paldiski North Port are ice-free all year round and mainly operate in cargo handling. The North Port also serves passenger routes to Sweden.
One of the biggest attractions in Paldiski is its cliff face. The large klint and its breath-taking views attract both city dwellers and visitors from afar.
Paldiski, together with nearby Keila is striving to be a part of Estonia’s Hydrogen Valley initiative.
