Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice place to visit and to see also the Karelian Village of old times. The food was great like always. Karelian style is the best and was served as buffet.

With a group of friends, we had a really good time here as a very nice local lady playing traditional folk music with a kantele entertained us. The Bardic Village has many beautiful exhibits concerning music, hunting, nature, art as well as war history. An old tsasouna building was also open for visiting. The fee was quite reasonable as well, so especially if you are already planning to go to Parppeinpirtti, I would really recommend checking this place out as well.

Runokylä is a group of historic buildings from around Northern Carelia. There are regular kantele concerts in the first building.
