In 1956 as the Finnish people returned to the leased area of Porkkala an impressive triumphal arc was the first thing they saw on the railway station in Kirkkonummi. Most of them were torn down right away, except for the one in Pikkala, which can still today be found in the forest.

Inside the railway station two statues were left there by the Soviets. They depicted Lenin and Stalin. The statues disappeared quite fast – but the pedestals stood there for quite a long time. What happened to the statues? Where were they moved? If you know something – please tell us!
