Sustainable Rakvere

The city of Rakvere was awarded a bronze level by the Green Destination, an international organization that promotes sustainable tourism.


Green DestinationsAn international sustainable tourism success stories is being organized by Green Destinations to recognize destinations that are working to make the visitor experience more sustainable and value-based.

A good example of becoming more sustainable is the Soviet-era renovated apartment buildings in the heart of Rakvere, which, in addition to saving on the costs of apartment building residents, have given a large part of the city a new and nice look and made it more attractive for the visitors.

During the in-depth evaluation process, the destinations had to complete and defend a 100-point report that mapped the current situation in areas relevant to sustainable tourism. The strengths of the destination and areas for development were assessed.  The environmental auditors of the international sustainable tourism development organization Green Destinations assessed the city of Rakvere as a Green Destination worthy of a bronze level.
