The Mannerheim Line was a defensive fortification line on the Karelian Isthmus built by Finland against the Soviet Union. During the Winter War it became known as the Mannerheim Line, after Field Marshal Baron Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim. The line was constructed in two phases: 1920–1924 and 1932–1939. By November 1939, when the Winter War began, the line was by no means complete.

  • Been in a few places on the Mannerheim line. In one place they found concrete triangles in 3 series, the tanks of those times herein would have been; in another was a crumbling pillbox, perhaps from the explosion, but he impaled valves looked like new and it's 70 years later!; in the 3rd place found the bunker with underground floor, there are the door speakers on the walls, oven, wood cabinet, but what surprised, Mount for machine gun was in working condition (grease still present), move to the right and to the left ...! Tidy up here and you can keep the defense ...! ; 4th place found a large silo also in good condition. Mannerheim line, it is not only history and past, but reality! Cool place, well, that they survived!

  • Mannerheim line I saw only in the area of the village of Ermilovo, in the vicinity of Primorsk. Huge concrete teeth protrude from the Earth right in the forest. Remnants of pillboxes, foundations, some even remnants of barbed wire. Of course, one is amazed at the thought of how these huge teeth were packed into one hundred kilometres through the forest man! The technique will not work here, I think that the only Assistant were horses. An impressive sight!
