The Road to the Treaty of Nystad guided tours

A little walking tour to where big things took place. The market square and the Peace Memorial are well known places, but where did the negotiators live? Where did they have their offices? And what was really discussed in the peace negotiations? During these tours organised by the official tourist guides of Uusikaupunki, you learn about the Treaty of Nystad as well as the events that took place here and elsewhere in Finland during the Great Northern War.

In honour of the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Nystad, the City of Uusikaupunki offers peace-themed guided walking tours for locals and visitors alike. The hour-long tour starts at Pakkahuone and ends in Rauhanpuisto. You must sign up in advance, at least one day before the tour. Tours in English are also available with advance booking. Links for signing up will be available closer to the tour dates at uki.fi/rauha300.
