  • I do not know whether any other city in Finland or the world in general was so indifferent to the historic destination of 200 years old as the eagle is with Kyminlinna. In general, attractive cultural events are being built around similar sites, such as the neighbouring town of Hamina, which makes its own base. Kyminlinna is going to rise even when people discover that history and culture should be defended and realized by the kind of employment and tourism opportunities it has. In addition, the regeneration can practically start without money, only by taking responsibility for the Kyminlinna and ensuring that the gates are open so that there is a possibility of visiting or keeping a small market at all. Bureaucracy will never be able to destroy a place that has had a historical significance for Finland.

  • He built a fortress in the middle of the eighteenth century. It was intended to protect the strategic road linking the eastern part of Finland to the West Road. Although the castle was built on the border, but has never participated in battles. Almaklat is now expanded with grass and look ugly. While not costing anybody bother converting historical site to a military museum.
