    KOHTLA-JÄRVE
    Possibly, the city of Kohtla-Järve would have never been developed if the "firm oil" had not been so rich here.
    A factory, which produced oil shale, was built next to the railway station Kohtla in 1924. Then the settlement of workers started growing not far from the territory of the factory.
    Nowadays about 50 000 people live in Kohtla- Järve and the town consists of 6 parts: Järve, Ahtme, Kukruze, Oru, Sompa and Viivikonna
