On 9th of April a group visited the Degerby Igor-museum that had travelled 400 kilometers. They came from Ilmajoki in Ostrobothnia, and they were very interesed in the unique history of the Porkkala area.

Many of them knew a lot about the history of our country in general, but they also pointed out that the history of this specific area was new to them.
