    In Marjala you can see the massive structures of the wartime Salpalinja, the largest construction site in Finland's history. Two renovated bunkers and their fortification works and wartime weapons are on view to the public at the Hyötiäinen Canal estuary on
    the shore of Lake Pyhäselkä. The bunkers will take you back 50 years to the time when former generations fought for Finland's independence.
