Fighter’s House

Lest We Forget

The Fighter’s House (Taistelijan Talo) in Hattuvaara village was built in 1988 as a tribute to our war veterans. Besides the main exhibition that focuses on the Ilomantsi battles and the summer of 1944 events, there are several different exhibitions to explore. The artillery seen at the Fighter’s House is the second largest in Finland.

The course of the Hattuvaara battle is exhibited outdoors on the battle terrain on the 1.5-kilometre-long Fighter’s Trail (Taistelijan taival) with 13 information boards about the waiting for the enemy and the ferocious battle in the early morning hours of 30th July 1944, told by the combat veterans.
