  • Very nice quick to jump over place to visit before Ruskeala. That is like preview, eventhough I wouldn't go there after Ruskeala. that is kind of warm-up before the great view.

  • This is not Niagara Falls, which makes it so nice. The park is well organized with a wooden deck, rope ladders and humoristic wood carvings. A fun place to stretch your legs for an hour. Good...

  • Absolutely must see!
  • I really wanted to visit this place. The whole family came here in July 2021. The price of an adult ticket is 400 rubles. Children's ticket - 150₽. The cashier asked for a map with various routes. We were given a map for free and it was very useful, as it was difficult to navigate according to the signs in the park itself. The time for visiting the park is not limited, you can walk at least all day, but it is better to take a snack and water with you, since the prices for drinks, chips and other things in local shops were, in my opinion, high. The territory of the park is quite large, everything is well-groomed, there are neat paths everywhere, but still in summer it is better to wear sneakers, as there are pebbles everywhere. And I was also surprised that there were no canopies anywhere in the park: you can’t hide from the rain or from the bright sun. There are several small lakes on the territory. You can rent a boat. There were also several attractions in the park, for which there were queues. We didn’t really want to stand in such heat in the sun, so we didn’t use any of them and I can’t say anything about the quality. There is also a souvenir shop on the territory where you can buy national costumes, honey, jam and even fresh cloudberries (it was just the season), but the prices, it seemed to me, were a bit high. The biggest minus for me is a huge number of people who run from place to place and constantly take pictures and behave noisily🤪 You definitely won’t be able to enjoy the natural beauty in silence here. It's great that we visited this park, saw how marble was mined before, admired the beautiful nature, but the second time, most likely, I would not have gone here.
