About 20 kilometers long Raate Road is significant for Finnish history. The road is popular among tourists and one can sense the horror and agony that this narrow gravel road has seen and heard in the past. The monuments, mass graves, dugouts and foxholes along the road make one feel humble.

The Raate Road has been declared to be a museum road and it begins from Raate Gate that is a Winter War Monument. The road ends at the border of Russia in a Finnish village called Raate.
