The Museum Road between Hamina and Virolahti is a part of the old postal route commonly known as the King’s Road. The road starts from the center of Hamina and follows the coast to Virolahti. The Museum Road is a varied cycling route, with hills and valleys and gentle and steep curves.
Three idyllic coastal villages (Mäntlahti, Klamila and Ravijoki) along the Museum Road invite you to enjoy beautiful moments in the countryside. There are plenty of things to see in the villages. For example, in Klamila you can get to know the life of the famous composer Uuno Klami and enjoy a delicious meal in Bistro & Bar Potkuri at Klamila Marina.
In Ravijoki, we recommend taking some time to admire Harjun Hovi‘s gardens and stopping by their idyllic Kiessi Café for refreshments. It is here where the defensive line of the previous wars was established and there are plenty of tunnels, bunkers, and anti-tank obstacles in this area to examine. Bring a flashlight!
The Bunker Museum, located along the main road, is fascinating for those interested in military history. The museum showcases several restored Salpa Line dugouts and battle stations. It also features hiking trails and a cafe.
