Station 5, description

This map, created during the time of Swedish dominion, shows what was to become the Grand Duchy of Finland, which emerged from the cessation of Finland to the Russian Empire in 1809 and enjoyed a considerable level of autonomy. The map also displays those territories (“Old Finland”) that Sweden had ceded to Russia in 1721/1743 and that were later amalgamated with the newly created Grand Duchy of Finland. The colouring, however, does not reflect this development.
