Languagehat has stumbled across a bilingual map of the Karelian Isthmus — the parcel of land northwest of St. Petersburg between the Gulf of Finland and Lake Ladoga that was annexed by the USSR during the Winter War of 1939-1940. Actually, it looks like a trilingual map, because Swedish names appear alongside the Finnish and Russian names (e.g. Wiborg/Viipuri/Выборг). The 1:200,000-scale map was printed in 1991.
