The exhibition presents the Finnish and foreign decorations given to the late President of the Republic Mauno Koivisto (1923–2017). It includes several high-ranking foreign decorations, which will be returned to their country of origin following the usual international custom after the end of the exhibition.
The orders and decorations conferred on Mauno Koivisto span a long historical period from the Medal of Liberty 2nd Class, conferred during the Continuation War in summer 1944, to the Order of Lenin of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics given on the occasion of his 60th birthday in 1983, and further to the Order of the Terra Mariana, instituted in 1995, in the newly independent Estonia.
The exhibition is separate part of exhibition "Finnish orders of merit: 100 years".
