At the Midsummer Night people gather on the hill nearby center around the fire. From the hill they may look at other fires, e.g. before the presidential cottage. (A lesson: The imperative sentence "Collect the fire woods!" is denoted in Finnish language "Kokko kokko kokko!") Note that the photo has been taken at the midnight!

I do not know any real danger in this place, just avoid this restaurant, it was the worst I have seen in Finland for a long time.

Palace would be more appropriate...
Kultaranta, or Gullranda in Swedish, is the name of the official summer residence of Finland's presidents. The house was built for a local tradesman in 1916 and also includes a nice garden. You can visit it all year round on guided tours but enquire at the tourist office for times. It's otherwise best seen from a boat, or at a distance from the Moomin World. Then you can also see if the president is in residence (if the flag is up).
