IMG_8531

Helsinki old village is representative of medieval habitats formed in the river valleys along the coast. The village looks to be from the turn of the 19th century and is well preserved. It has around ten farms, of which the oldest buildings range from the end of 1700s to the beginning of 1800s. Olofs, Danis, Nygrannas, Riddars I and II, Juuns, Hannusas, Nedre Rutars and Nyknapas are situated close to one another as a dense village by an old dirt track.
