“The town of Sillamäe was constructed in the 1940s by the Soviets to support a nearby secret uranium processing plant. The settlement was classified as a closed city and, therefore, didn’t appear on most maps of the USSR and a special pass was required in order to enter. The Monument to Atomic Power was erected on the same spot where a statue of Joseph Stalin used to be. The latter was dismantled in 1963.” https://www.kathmanduandbeyond.com/monument-atomic-power-sillamae-estonia/
