Virtual Sortavala

The Virtual Sortavala is a historical reconstruction of the Finnish-Russian cultural heritage of Sortavala town – the story told through a set of individual stories of each unique historical building in the city as it was in year 1939. Some of these buildings no longer exist, and some dilapidated and soon may be finally lost. At the same time, the project provides a dive into the life of the city during Finnish and Soviet-Russian periods. This project is based on materials that were received as a result of studies run by architect Martti I. Jaatinen. Also the web site used the scale model of the city, which was taken as a reconstruction of the basic layout of the city in 1939. It is worth mentioning that this model is one of the most notable exhibits of Carelicum historical museum in Joensuu (Finland) The main web site: http://virtualsortavala.jns.fi
