  • Mystical forest Patsaspuisto, near Parikkala-this is the most exciting part of our one-day tour in Savonlinna. We've not invested in time, so we decided to go there just to way back when it was dark. Our guide warned us that the Park will likely not lighting, so the visit may be a little extreme)) Vejjo Rjonkkjonjen-began his career in the 1960s and during the 40 years he created sculptures made of concrete. He had no artistic education, it was his hobby. However, shortly before his death he received the State Prize and critical acclaim! He was fond of philosophy, yoga, Anatomy, and as the story goes, was a little off.) Sculptures depict human beings in life-size, in the Park, they are divided into groups by topics, total of about 500. At the entrance is a plaque, which shows the paths. Supposedly customers can walk through the paths, during his lifetime the artist really cursed at anyone who violates these rules! Centered, right at the entrance to a separate fenced plot of Park sculptures is the most famous Yoga-Park with a group of more than 200 shapes. In front of the House is lined with figures of children playing, behind the House-people of different nationalities. As I have already said, the artist had no special education, so the sculpture course similar to humans, but they are not so developed in terms of anatomy. However, they are totally special! Their faces are fascinating! The first is the eyes. Most of the sculptures they do not simply drawn, they have the pupil, which is hidden in the Groove for the stjoklyshkom that creates the illusion of a real eye. Moreover, opinion, creates the feeling that wherever you turn, they ALL look up to you! Scary, I tell you, and especially in the dark when you're podsvechivaesh' yourself path mobile phone)) the second point-their "smiles.". can't say that benevolent) and as they say ... the artist used real teeth, which it supplied his friends-dentists ... This is a very unusual place, perhaps I've never seen anything like it, and it's not just my opinion.

  • A few days ago visited in this mystical forest and not yet subside impressions of what he saw. I won't say that it's scary. It's amazing and interesting. It takes time to calmly consider everything, because the sculptures around 400 pieces and they are hiding around the site, sometimes it suddenly peeking from under the bushes. Amaze with glass eyes and teeth and all exhibits. Particularly impressionable, perhaps forego a visit.
