The Retreat location – Kloogaranna
Kloogaranna is a beach resort situated 40km from Tallinn. It’s known for its fine white sand and quiet bay location. The area was very popular summer holiday destination during Soviet times, when on a nice day the beach was always full of vacationers travelling there by train. Rapid political and economic changes after the fall of the Soviet Union significantly reduced the beach’s popularity. However, the natural amenities are still there. Today, Kloogaranna area is packed with typical summer houses aka dachas. Also there are many former and still operating youth camps, one of which is the location for the Retreat.
