Why locals love it

Another great place for a walk or a run, it's tranquil and in a truly beautiful location by the seashore.

Why you should visit it

A wonderful, peaceful, green and leafy haven and a fascinating place to soak up a bit of real history. Take some time out from the land of the living to wander amongst the extravagant graves and monuments to the beloved long gone.

Absolutely fab cemetary, if possible take a guided tour, this place is unique to visit, not only because of it's beauty among all the many different tree species but also all the Finnish history that it crams
