Raatteen Portti makes you pause and think back to the decisive moments of the Winter war. In addition to the hostilities, the Winter War exhibition of Raatteen Portti delves into the everyday lives of Suomussalmi residents before and after the war. Decked out in old-world style, the charming Kanttiini Päämaja and its doughnuts served with coffee rid your mind of the gloomy thoughts of war. Raatteen Portti is open from May to September and, during other time, to order for groups. Majatalo Karhun Pesä is used as an accommodation and festive space throughout the year.

Raate Road

Raate Road is one of Finland’s most well-known combat areas. Driving along this museum road, you can still see the lines of defence, which were the scenes of fierce action during the Winter War.

The Winter War Museum

The exhibition, renewed in 2014, gives a comprehensive account of the events of the Winter War. In addition to exhibition, we recommend checking out the 14 minute documentary film on the subject.

Kanttiini Päämaja

Kanttiini Päämaja’s opening hours follow those of the Winter War Museum. Its popular doughnuts are made on the premises. Lunch is served every day in July and will be organised for groups to order at other times as well.

Majatalo Karhun Pesä

Offering accommodation throughout the year, Majatalo Karhun Pesä has beds for 16 people. The premises are ideal for holding celebrations, for example. The necessary catering can be ordered from Raatteen Portti.


Kanttiini Päämaja’s souvenir shop carries items ranging from used clothing and gear of the Finnish army, war literature, T-shirts and local handicraft.
