For several years already unusual and original Christmas trees in Rakvere have got not only the locals´ attention, but have conquered also the foreign media. This year is no different. Huffington Post has selected Rakvere Xmas tree to be one in the category of „The most breathtaking and inspiring Christmas trees in 2017“.
However, the fate of Rakvere’s Xmas tree was under the question this year – a new coalition agreement was signed in October and it also stipulated, that unusual Xmas tree will no longer be displayed at the city central square and will be replaced with the traditional one. Luckily worldwide famous tree-installation remained and as a compromise also the traditional Xmas tree was set up.
Author of famous Rakvere tree-installation is Rakvere city artist Teet Suur and this is already his 5th unusual Xmas tree this year. In the tree-installation there are combined several stairways, doors and lighting constructions and for the first time it is also possible to go into the Xmas tree.
