The rapid growth of Tallinn as an industrial town began with the building of the railway in 1870. There were several large textile factories, a railway, metal industry and three shipbuilding companies. The heart of Tallinn’s industry is situated in Kopli peninsula on a 5 km long, relatively narrow stripe of land. In addition to a dozen industrial complexes and factories, the area also included residential quarters, schools, kindergartens, shops and churches.
