Another day out with Tero & Matias found us at Aulanko which was established between 1883-1910 by  Colonel Hugo Standertskj÷ld, who made his money by manufacturing arms in Russia.

He created an English style garden with  ponds, pavilions and a Lookout Tower which gave us a magnificent view of the surrounding forests and lake plus there was more that we didn't manage to see.

He opened it to the public and wanted future generations to enjoy it and is now owned by the city of Hameenlinna. This is another place with a lot of history and fame,  a very popular tourist spot and we could have spent a lot more time here taking it all in.

The pics will tell the rest.
