  • Fine sand ridges with a view of the rim. Did not see the ancient memories or anything else but the scenery was comiat.

  • A pleasant place for a leisurely walk on Finland's largest hill! In addition to the fact that there are really beautiful scenery, this place has an interesting history! Here on top was the fortress of Rapol, the walls of it surrounded the area of 58 thousand. sq.m., and it operated presumably from the 13th to the 15th century, and parts of it could have been built even earlier, because this area was inhabited around the 7th century. Served as a defense against the raids of Novgorod and Swedes. Although the fortress itself has not survived to our times, but in some places you can see the remains of its walls! There are also ancient graves, as well as a wolf pit, where in the early 18th century allegedly tried to catch wolves, as a result of which at the end of the 19th century wolves almost disappeared from the region of Valkeakoski, and gradually returned only after 1973, when their Declared under protection!
