In English:

In this third and final part of our trip to ”Back to the roots”, I show photos from a small town called Terijoki. Our hotel was in this town. My photos (1 – 23) show some house in the town, two churches and some view from Terijoki beach. Long time ago Terijoki was very popular beach place. It was full with old villas which do not exist anymore. The most famous person who lived in Kuokkala, Terijoki was Ilia Efimovich Repin (1844-1930). Many of his painting are awesome and if You have never heard about Repin, then now it is high time.

The rest of my photos show what I saw on the way to the town called Vyborg and some of its famous sights. Before WW2 Vyborg was a Finnish town having international inhabitants. It was a very beautiful town at those days having in 1938 about 80000 inhabitants. The most famous park was called Monrepos and the song having the same name is old, but beautiful melody. In Vyborg there are yet today more that 200 building built by Finns.

During summer many Finns visit Vyborg and they feel great nostalgia when there. Some of old valuable buildings have been restored by the money coming from Finland. From Helsinki to Vyborg the distance is 217km/ 135 miles. From the Finnish border town the distance is 61km / 38 miles. Normally I do not give external links from my blog, but this old Finnish town is worth of them and among them there is the artist IIya Repin For those might to visit Vyborg there are also one day cruises from Lappeenranta.

En español:

En esta tercera y última parte de nuestro viaje a “volver a las raíces”, muestro fotos de un pequeño pueblo llamado Terijoki. Nuestro hotel estaba en esta ciudad. Mis fotos (1 – 23) muestran algunas casas en la ciudad, dos iglesias y un poco de vista de Terijoki playa. Hace mucho tiempo cuando Terijoki era un lugar con su playa muy popular. Estaba lleno de villas antiguas que ya no existen más. La persona más famosa que vivió en Kuokkala, Terijoki era Ilia Efimovich Repin (1844-1930) .. Muchas de sus pinturas son impresionantes y si usted nunca ha oído hablar de Repin, entonces ahora es el momento de alta.

El resto de mis fotos muestran lo que vi en el camino a la ciudad llamada Vyborg y algunos de sus lugares de interés. Antes de Vyborg WW2 era una ciudad finlandesa con habitantes internacionales. Era una ciudad muy hermosa en aquellos días que tenía en 1938 unos 80.000 habitantes. El parque más famoso fue llamado Monrepos y hay la canción viejo del mismo nombre, pero hermosa melodía. En Vyborg hay todavía hoy más que 200 edificio construido por los finlandeses.

Durante el verano, muchos finlandeses visitan Vyborg y sienten gran nostalgia cuando allí. Algunos de los viejos edificios de valor han sido restaurados por el dinero procedente de Finlandia. De Helsinki a Vyborg, la distancia es de 217 kilometros / 135 millas. Desde la ciudad de la frontera finlandesa la distancia es de 61 kilometros / 38 millas solamente. Normalmente no me dan enlaces externos desde mi blog, pero esta ciudad finlandesa de edad se vale de ellos y entre ellos se encuentra el artista IIya Repinear Para los que podría visitar Vyborg también hay un crucero de un día desde Lappeenranta.

En francais:

Dans cette troisième et dernière partie de notre voyage ” Retour aux racines “, je montre les photos d’une petite ville appelée Terijoki. Notre hôtel était dans cette ville aussi. Mes photos (1 – 23) montrent une maison dans la ville, deux églises et une vue sur la page de Terijoki. Il ya longtemps quand Terijoki était le lieu très populaire avec sa plage. Elle était plein de villas anciennes qui n’existent plus. La personne la plus célèbre qui a vécu dans Kuokkala, Terijoki, était Ilia Efimovich Repin (1844-1930) .. Beaucoup de ses tableaux sont impressionnants et si vous avez jamais entendu parler de Repin, alors maintenant il est grand temps.

Le reste de mes photos montrent ce que j’ai vu sur le chemin de la ville appelée Vyborg et certains de ses sites célèbres.

    • Hi Cocomino.

      Thank you. What we find interesting there, is “old” Finnish architecture. One excellent example is Vyborg Library which has been restored my international money. The library was designed by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. Aalto is worldwide known. In Wikipedia, there is great info about Alvar Aalto. If You visit Finland, then in summer take a cruise to Vyborg.

      Have a great day!

  5. The first church you showed is beautiful, but those old buildings now in ruins are very sad. I’m glad to read that some of the old building have been restored. Thank you for sharing your trip to the past with us. It has been very interesting and informative.

      Thank You for following our trip. You are right, because my photos talk “the dark truth” from the condition of buildings.

  6. The photos are amazing and you have so successfully taken us all along on your holiday. Even those buildings in disrepair are lovely in a sad and wistful way. The photos of the street vendors, almost a carnival setting, intrigued me…….American Indians?? Is that what I see? Thanks again for the tour. I can definitely feel how much this meant to you and your wife. Hugs, Doreen

    • Hi Doreen.

      Thank You for Your comment. What comes to those American Indians, I am quite sure that they were not real native Indians. In 1991 there came from Sweden to Finland so called Iriadamant native Indians. They were seeking organic life; so they said. Also they dressed and lived like native Indians in the woods. They left Finland in 1993. Were these native Indians in Vyborg Iriadamant, I do not know. So, I am sorry that I do not have correct answer.

      Happy week-end!

  7. I was surprised to see the American Indian costumes. Didn’t understand the connection to Finnland. The town of Vyborg – at least, the name – was familiar to me. My husband once bought some leather boots (here in Canada) that were made in Vyborg. Did you happen to see a boot factory in your travels through that town?

    Comment by wordsfromanneli — November 23, 2012 @ 17:54 | Reply

    • Hi Anneli.

      I gave some kind of answer about those American Indians in Vyborg in my answer to Doreen (Treadlemusic). No, I did not see any boot factory and I searched also in Finnish in addition to English, no results. So sorry.

      Happy week-end!

  8. Encore des souvenirs pour vous. De belles images et un marché que j’aurais aimé visiter aussi. Je reconnais cette architecture des villes de la Russie du Nord, les voitures ont changé depuis mon temps… finies les Wolga et Zyl… mais j’ai reconnu des Zhiguli dans ta première série en Carélie. Je conduisais une Zhiguli jaune à Moscou. Quelle aventure ! Merci beaucoup d’avoir partagé ces moments émouvants pour vous.

      Muchas gracias a ti por tu comentario. La torre es interessante realmente y el castello es un tema muy popular de las pinturas en Finlandia.

  13. So much to see… I especially like the old stone building with the columns. But then the churches…

    But my main question: What’s with the men dressed as Native Americans? They do seem out of place.

    • Hi Audrey.

      Well, I have no explanation concerning about those Native Indians. Sorry, they were big surprise for us to see them. Our bus stop before continuing to Finland was quite short and we wanted enjoyed some nice cups of coffee in the round tower. It was worth; I mean the coffee as the tower itself. When entering Russia we spent 1½ hour only in customs, but when leaving we spent 3½ hours in customs and we had to sit all the time. Trucks and person cars could pass the custom all the time, but we had to wait and wait. The wait was not the “mood-boosting”. Thank You for Your visit and leaving Your comment.

      Have a great beginning of the week!

      Thank You for Your comment. Yes, to see “Russian” Indians was a surprise.

  15. I enjoyed all your photos. I was interested in your story in the comments about the Swedish people who adopted a Native American lifestyle. In America you couldn’t just go into the woods and pretend to be an Indian. You would be arrested for hunting without a hunting license and for hunting when it was not hunting season. Real Native Americans who live on a reservation can hunt whenever their own government permits it because they make their own laws.

    • Hi Davinder.

      Thank You. I am very happy that You did find so many photos which You love. I have good news to You concerning churches. In the beginning of next Year I’ll start my series of posts presenting something exceptional which do not exist anywhere else in our world. What I am presenting? They are wooden Poor-man statues or let’s say Wooden beggar statues. Finnish pauper sculptures. There are 107 poor-man statues and one poor-woman statue. In my series of 14 posts I’ll present 54 Poor-man statues, not only them but at same time altars, bell towers, chandeliers, cemeteries etc. Always I could not visit inside churches, but quite many.

      Be sure that my series of presenting these statues is unique. I hope that You will follow my 14 posts from them.

      Have a great day!

      BTW. My next posts are snow photos except one on Christmas Eve and then I’ll show old traditional Finnish Christmas postcards. It is the second part already.
