Degerby Igor museum, Inkoo

How did the Soviet base close to the capital affect those living nearby - and what happened to those who crossed the border at sea? The Porkkalabase existed for just eleven years, but the destroy of fields and forests was enormous, a lot of the buildings were either in a very bad shape or had just been taken away, somewhere. The Porkkala people had to work very hard - and they needed tractors.
