Paldiski as a town was once officially closed, off limits; when it was opened up and everyone could visit the town they discovered a mess – a contaminated waste dump of soviet military equipment, structures and pollutants. Since those days Paldiski and surroundings have been cleaned up and now Pakri Peninsula is a protected nature reserve.
