  • Crafts museum and shop. Exhibits give a decent view of how cobblers and coppersmiths lived 170 years ago. Service personnel dressed in traditonal linen and cotton garments and head dresses. The café has a positively rustic and quaint ambiance. Not in a cobweb dusty way.They sell specialty coffees, cheese and normal cakes, pastries and handmade candy etc. Customer service has been great so far. Two shops sell everything connected to old ways and tools in knitting and other such crafts. They are spot on to create a wholesome setting. To top it all off there is an actual apprenticed blacksmith who makes wrought iron roses, rings, blades, metallic jewelry, nails, door handles, inside decor items and all kinds of metalcrafts produce. I ordered a wrought iron ring, which was rather inexpensive. Thoroughly great experience and a positive beautiful milieu.
  • Nice cafe and some Finnish shops, great stop if you're nearby but I wouldn't make an effort to get there.
