Symbolic monument of the founder of Vyborg found just a little way away from the Castle and Clock Tower. It’s okay - possibly not as grand as it could be for the town’s hero.

Well how exiting can it be ? But it was a well made beatiful statue near old town. Well worth a visit.

I did see it with my fiance during our stay, but I honestly have no idea what was so special with the statue!

Some how managed throw soviet time, this statue, and whole small square around look so non-Russian, that for a moment you may imagine being in Europe. There is a nice cafe on the square, take a coffee and look to the Torkel

основатель Выборга. When Tavastland had been attacked by the Republic of Novgorod, in 1292, marshal Torkel led the third Swedish crusade against Novgorod, in 1293 and conquered parts of Karelia, where he founded the stronghold of Viborg.
