The return trip can be travelled through the same route or treading along the old highway back to Hamina. Along the highway is the Virolahti Bunker Museum, which has plenty of things to see and experience - it is worth visiting even if you are not interested in war history.
- There are many things to see and to experience in the Harju Learning Centre area. This interesting manor area can be explored freely at your own pace. You can expect a lot of horses, military history sites, the Vahtivuori nature stage and, of course, the atmospheric summer café Kiessi.
- A renovated old wartime air surveillance tower can be found in Pyterlahti (Siipioravanvuori, 49900 Virolahti). Klamila also has a renovated observation tower.
- The Bunker Museum located along the main road is a fascinating place to visit for those interested in military history. The museum showcases several restored Salpa Line dugouts and battle stations. It also features two interesting trail routes of just over 4 km, one of which has been implemented in the spirit of “The Unknown Soldier” while the other is about the importance of Lotta Svärd members in building the line of defence. The Bunker Museum also has a café.
