developed along the southern shoreline.


The Seurasaari island provides a nice setting for outdoor recreation, sun-worshippers and walkers. The tame ducks, swans and
geese swarming around the bridge welcome everybody. Having crossed the white wooden bridge a visitor can’t help running into the
happy little squirrels of the island. At the Open-Air Museum of Seurasaari the traditional Finnish way of life is displayed in the
cottages, farmsteads and manors of the past four centuries that have been relocated from all around Finland. The Kalevalakehto
Installation (2010) by students from American and Finnish schools of architecture and design is situated on the south bank of the island
and is meant for relaxing and enjoying the silence. At Seurasaari you’ll also find restaurant Seurasaari, Cafe Mieritz, kiosks and
a beach (nude-, except for Wed & Sun). Barbecuing is also possible at the grill by the Festival Ground kiosk.
