The European Commission and Europa Nostra, a citizens' movement for safeguarding Europe's cultural and natural heritage, has unveiled the winners of the 2013 European Union prize for cultural heritage/Europa Nostra awards, which include the restored WWI-era seaplane hangars in Tallinn's Seaplane Harbour that now house the new flagship venue of the Estonian Maritime Museum.
The 30 winners were selected from nearly 200 nominated projects.
The award ceremony will take place on 16 June in Athens. Of the 30 winning projects, six will be named as grand prix laureates in Athens and one of the winners will receive the public choice award, based on an online poll conducted by Europa Nostra.
In Estonia's neighbourhood, wooden housing in the old town of Kuldiga, Latvia also won recognition.
