Fjällbon Puisto

Fjällbon Puisto has been created quite recently. It’s a nice place to visit with the family. There is a playground for kids, a fireplace just next to the lake, and a hut filled with firewood. There is also construction built into the lake from where you can easily get into the lake to swim.

Rantatie

This weekend I took my bike and rode 25 km around Lake Tuusula. The route is famous for its “Rantatie”, where many Finnish artists lived in the 19th century and influenced Finnish culture. You can visit the following places in Rantatie:

  • Lotta Museum is dedicated to Lotta Svart – a voluntary paramilitary organization for women founded in 1918.
  • Halosenniemi – art museum dedicated to Pekka Halonen (1865-1933) – a painter of Finnish landscapes and people. The large window of Pekka Halonen’s house is quite impressive.
  • Erkkola Museum – Erkkola was a poet and a leading cultural figure around 1900.
  • Tuusula Church from 1734
  • Tomb of Aleksis Kivi (1834-1872), who wrote the first important novel in Finnish – Seven Brothers
