  • We have a tradition. Every new year we're leaving a few days fishing in Finland. True cost to notice that last years fishing is not really there. There is no ice. And in this year happened the same misfortune. Ice, however, was. But subtle. What to do? Found Savonlinna-nearby in the village of Punkaharju forest Museum-"LUSTO. And it turned out we guessed. Here is the Museum! He's just huge. By Finnish standards, of course. And very interesting. What is the collection of forest machines, machines, motorcycles, chain saws and other forestry tools! You can sit down for computer simulation and hack in the Woods. And you can sit behind the levers hydraulic loader and try your hand at shtabelirovke. Absolutely awesome sight-old photos and films on the work of the lumberjacks, rafters, on the work of forest machinery and mechanisms of the past and of the 19th century. And, of course, children are not forgotten. The exhibition is worth a huge tree, in which young people enjoying themselves, and near-bear's den. But the biggest impression I was silent room. Very large room with a screen. On the screen-Lake. On the Lake, swim in the Lake, birds swim fish. You hear only the voices of birds. Peace and quiet, such that you do not want to leave. I advise all adults and children to get something in this museum.

  • With the love and care of Finns belong to the nature with the same love and incredibly creative made this museum very educational for children: many games and fun exhibits.

  • Do: a walk in the bike in place. At the water's edge, and in the forest, paths marked to follow. Nice ride. Bikes are rented to Lusto Museum, or the staff is very welcoming and friendly.
