The King’s Road 2.-6.8.2008

The King's Road is a historic road from Turku to Vyborg in Finland, dating back to the 14th century. In the 18th century the King’s Road was part of an old mailing route from Stockholm to St. Petersburg and that was the busiest time in the history of the road.

On this road kings and armies travelled through southern Finland.

In 1997 the road was marked as a travel route, which follows the historic route as closely as possible.
