Vyborg, Russia...now, but used to be Finland's second largest city. My parents used to tell us about the cobblestoned roads and the ancient, well built stone houses... so sad that much of it has gone to ruin...kp | by © kovalchuk.nikolay | via allthingseurope

Vyborg, Russia, now..... was Viipuri, Finland, when my parents were born (1908 and 1909) and until 1940 when Russia took over during the Winter War. Finland rallied and got it back for 3 years and lost it again, permanently in 1944. My parents described it to us in great detail... I just wish that I had listened more attentively :(.... kp
