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. They had not really understood what exactly had been going on on the Soviet military base of Porkkala behind closed borders 70 years ago. The group continued along the old King's road towards the most southern city of Finland, Hanko.
