Finnish-Estonian project shedded light on eight historical tourist attractions

The Lights On! Project, active in 2015–2018, seeked to create a joint network of historical tourist attractions in Finland and Estonia.

The project shedded new light on the enchanting shared past of the North-Eastern Baltic Sea. It encouraged people to visit spectacular ruins, fortresses and hill forts in both countries, and improved their quality as tourist destinations.
