Not much of a contribution i see. Russians just more or less cleaned from ruins the city they shelled and bombed themselves.

Impressive. Had things gone differently.. I wonder how many of those older buildings would have been torn down eventually in the 60s and 70s as modernism hit Finnish cities.

Vyborg is really depressive town ATM and they have very weak municipal power which doesn't do much for the town.

This would be such a great city if it had stayed in Finnish hands.
