Strange statues all over the park, hidden path's etc. Nice one. There is souvenir shop, which is only open at summer and some specific days all over the year. No entry fee, no closing time. Must be creepy if went by dark. Cool. Stop by!

Voluntary admission fee. Small shop by supporting association. Art by Mr. Veijo Rönkkönen. Like a small fairytale World. Amazing and fun!

A place that's really hard to describe! Beautiful green garden with huge amount of unique sculptures: installation of over 200 yogis and a parade of children are maybe the most impressive ones. When going, remember to reserve coins for the admission fee.

Basically it is a garden statues made of concrete depicting mostly humans and some animals. I think the groups of statues, especially the yoga park, was quite fascinating and worth seeing. I've never seen anything like it before. Individual statues were just spooky. All in...More

The artist Veijo Rönkkönen was a yogi and a self-taught sculptor. Our group's opinions split evenly: half thought his work was spooky and mildly unpleasant, the other half (myself included) thought his sculptures were fun and creative in a beautiful partially overgrown garden setting. The...More

I must admit to being somewhat puzzled by some of the reviewers who found this disturbing. Perhaps they were not made aware of the history of the creator of this amazing collection of cement sculptures, Veijo Ronkonon, who died in 2010. He was a gymnast,...More

A few days ago I`ve visited this mystical forest and my impressions still don`t cease. I'm not saying that it's scary. This is surprising and interesting. It takes time to calmly consider everything, because there are about 400 sculptures and they hide around the site,...More
