Hvittrask

Reviewed By andmar - Warwickshire, United Kingdom

This makes a lovely day trip out of Helsinki. The houses in the compound, designed by Eliel Saarinen, father of Eero, and the partners in his architectural practice. The buildings and their interiors are in the Finnish arts & craft style, reminiscent of Jugenstihl. Aside from the interest in architecture and design, the houses are located in a stunning location in a forest above a lake outside Helsinki. You can walk down to the lakeshore (there are both steps and a winding path) - the walk back up is pretty steep and you'll need to leave time to do it. As much as anything, the location epitomises Finland with its birch Forests & lakes. There is a nice little café on the site.

Kirkkonummen kirkko

Reviewed By beachstone2c - Helsinki, Finland

This stone church was first built in the 14th century. It has ever since gone through several episodes but parts of the original church are still there. The church was taken into use again in 1959 after Russians left from Porkkala. While the church is very nice, the same cannot be said about the city of Kirkkonummi built around the church-surroundings are in fact horrible and makes one wonder who on earth let that happen.

I really enjoyed this golf course despite playing one of my worst rounds of the year. The setting is beautiful with natural terrain dominating one nine after a relatively flat and open other 9. Reminded me of courses in Maine or Canada. Helped by the fact that it was an absolutely stunner of a day weather-wise but still a solid gold course that I'd play again.

Peuramaa Golf

Reviewed By Dado_63xx - Genoa, Italy

I have visited a number of Golf facilities in Finland and was positively impressed by Peuramaa Golf.
The parking is wide and well marked.
The Club house is adequately sized and well taken care of.
Restaurant and bar offer food and drinks at all time during opening hours.
The Caddiemaster's counter beside a small golf accessories sales point is very close to the starting tees of the two 18 holes courses. Caddiemaster's office is well organised and supportive.
Beside the 2 main courses it also exists a 9 holes/ par 3 course with own registration office also in charge for the driving range.
The main courses are designed to develop in parallel but are well divided by small forestry and landscape elements and thus almost never interfere with each other.
Vanha Peura is slightly less difficult than Porkkala which presents some more challenging areas due to narrow passes among well exploited hazards.
Forestry landscapes are just beatiful.

Hogbergetin Luola

Reviewed By Kari V

Google ja useat muut karttaohjeet ohjaavat ratsutilan läpi 'vuoren' itäpuolelle. Tätä kautta kyllä helpompi löytää luolalle, MUTTA joudut kulkemaan ratsutilan maiden halki ja saatat törmätä ratsukkoihin matkalla, eivätkä ne ehkä tykkää autoilusta. Samoin on hankalaa kääntää auto tai pysäköidä se luolan alle. Ratsutila ei tykkää,että pysäköit asiakaspysäköintipaikoille. Ohittaminen saattaa olla vaikeaa. SIISPÄ - pysäköi Porkkalantien ja Vanhan Porkkalantien (Peuramaan) risteyteyksen vastapäätä olevan bussipysäkin jommalle kummalle puolen pientareelle. Pysäkin takaa nousee polku ylös ja koillis-itäsuuntaan suunnistamalla ja matkalla maisemia ihailemalla luola löytyy noin alle kilometrin päästä. Olen itse kuusikymppinen ja lähes satakiloinen perusterve mies ja onnistuin löytämään luolan google mapsin avulla. Jos jollain on geokätkö sovellutus, niin netistä löytyy koordinaatit. Matkalla kerkiää nauttimaan mustikoista tai puolukoista tai sienistä, riippuen vuodenajasta. Ehdottomasti käynnin arvoinen. Samalla matkalla voi käydä lounaan syömässä Bistro O Matissa.

Pampskatan outdoor area in Kirkkonummi

Reviewed By Punakettu - Espoo, Finland

Porkkala peninsula is famous for its history (after second world war this area was under Soviet Union to 1956) and nature. This place is also the narrowest point on Baltic Sea between Finland and Estonia. It is only 36km to nearest landmark of Estonia. That is probably the biggest reason why bird-lovers likes this place so much. It has a key position when bird migrition is on.
Pampskatan is a nature reserve. You will find couple fireplaces and dry toilets. It is allowed to camp for short time. Excellen enviroment if you like sea views, birds and rocky areas. Beware of slippery rock and adders.
Only negative thing is actually how to get there. You need a car. Driving time from the capitol Helsinki is about 45-60 minutes and the road is very narrow and tortuous.
Take good time and nice lunchbox with you and your friends, this is an excellent place for high experience picnic places.

Gesterby Museum Area

Reviewed By Ig0r2014 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Достаточно традиционный для Финляндии музей под открытым небом, посвященный провинциальной жизни. На небольшом участке расположены старинная мельница, амбары, различные хозяйские и жилые постройки. Здесь можно посмотреть каким образом существовал быт обычных людей в старой Финляндии, их орудия производства, устройства жилищ и работы. Интересно для любителей истории. Напротив музея есть свободная парковка для автомобиля. Мы совершенно случайно на него наткнулись в местечке Киркконумми, заехав по дороге в местный храм.
