Suurpea is a coastal village in Kuusalu Parish in Harju County in northern Estonia. The village is located in Lahemaa National Park.
In Soviet Union times, only Suurpea village was located here. That’s when in accordance with a joint decision of the ESSR Council of Ministers and the Navy of the USSR, land was allocated here for the military unit, with the research center for the ship’s protection, and ships from mine-torpedo weapons. Since 1953, Suurpea is having a whole new life.
According to the words of Suurpea’s patriarch Tiina Perminova, in Soviet times, population of Surpea village was more than 700 people. Now, 160 people are living here.
“Within five years, with help of the local self-government of the Kuusalu parish, children sandbox and a climbing frame were built near the residential houses of Suurpea, for older children, now there is a volleyball court and a dance floor.”
