Development of tourism of Raate Road, 1st step
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The objective of the project was to develop tourism and increase the number of visitors to the Raate Road exhibitions. The first step is to create a so-called “vision room” using the capabilities of the existing building. In this room, visitors receive audiovisual effects that allow them to feel involved in the events of the Winter War on the Raate road. With the help of the vision room, the Raate Road Museum maintains its status as the most popular military-historical monument in Finland
