Aitolahti old Church
The Aitolahti old church, situated in beautiful surroundings, is very popular for various ceremonies. It was consecrated at midsummer 1928.
The church built in mediaeval style is a fine example of stone masonry. The church underwent a complete interior renovation during the winter of 1996-97 and there is a cemetery near the church.Related to:

Paarlahti is the only fjord in Finland and the biggest inland fjord in Scandinavian. It's very deep, against other finnish lakes, mostly 60 meters.
There are a couple of islands so, may be it's not a pure fjord like in Norway. But it's nice.
Try to rent a boat or call your local friends.Related to:

Kessan baari (The bar of Kessa): This You must see!
This is not a food restaurant, but an original finnish bar from 60´s. Try beer and snacks. On Working days there are some lunch services, last time I ate pea soup and pancakes (about 5 euros).
The bar used to be service station (Kesoil), but the station stopped to serve gasoline and, furtunately, the bar stayed and I like It!
Favorite Dish: In summer time bar Kessa heatens the pizza owen so you can find delicious pizzas there but no quarantee, check the pizza time when you get there.
And of course, Beer is Beer (Olvi).Related to:

Helping little birds with nests
This habit of Finns is for joy and good. Take one meter of timber, saw, hammer and nails (and beer), use a couple of hours planning, designing and producing, and finally hang your achievement to tree.
And on early spring you get visitors to your nesting box. This one is Great Tit (Parus major), a very common bird in Finland.
