This Saloon Car of Marshal Mannerheim is a magnificent historical monument and exemplar reminding his work in motion during hard war times! The Saloon is open for public only on June 4th annually.

The Mannerheim´s Saloon car is open for visitors only once a year and day is our marshall´s birthday the 4.th of June. Then you can walk through the saloon and see how Mannerheim travelled in his Saloon car. Interesting, I do recommend.

This place is valuable for me, because I respect Mannerheim. It is possible to look into car through windows - entrance prohibited. Funny, that car attached to platform with a small locker - you can find it, Ithink it is a joke.
