The project will take place in the biggest island of Estonia – Saaremaa. It is a famous touristical place, especially for people from Finland, Russia, Germany, etc.  Kuressaare is a wanted place for its rich SPA-culture and SPA-hotels. The city is surrounded from on side with the see and offers a lovely architecture in its old-town. The most famous place in Kuressaare is definately the Kuressaare castle, which stands there from the medieval times.
