  Butterfly in Nuuksio Park
by sifrim

Situated at about 40 km from Helsinki, the park offers a varied relief, with lot of lakes and pools, pristine forests, various animals, birds and insects (including mosquitos!).
It's the only place in Finland where I saw a (not poisonous) snake - I have finnish acquaintances who never saw one!
The southern part of the park offers several sign-posted trails.
There exists also 4 camping sites.
It's a very pleasant way to see the finnish nature and landscape.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
