Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    The stone castle is a very unique building and worth visiting. Unbelieveable that the stone castle was built with just stones found in the area. The stone castle is located almost at the top of Pirunvuori hill and by climbing up 300 more meters you reach the top with a very beautiful view over the Rautavesi lake.

    Be careful: there might be snakes (the Finnish vipera berus snake) on the rocks and stones around the stone castle, especially if it's a hot and sunny day. They usually are afraid of people, but it's wise to mind your steps when strolling around.

    On hot summerday the cool, historic atmosphere of St Olaf is a unique experience in
    the middle of finnish countryside. After burned down the church has been re-built again and also been beautyfully decorated with paintings made by modern artists Kuutti Lavonen and Osmo Rauhala. Really worth visiting.

    This place might be good, but only if you understand Finnish. Nothing at all in any other languages. Not even in the second national language, Swedish.

    Pirulanvuori Observation Tower in Northern Sastamala offers beautiful vistas over lakes (Palojärvi, Miekkajärvi and Lavijärvi) and forests. The tower itself is 15 meters high but the top of the tower has an elevation of 112 meters above the sea level. The scenery seen from the tower is depicted on the backside of the Finnish two euro coin. The path from the (small) parking area is 250 meters. It's not recommendable for strollers.

    The most famous medieval church of the region is of course the church of St.Olav. However, a short distance from it is an even older and a much larger medieval church, also on a uniquely beautiful spot by the lake.

    This church is open every day during the summer. It is quiet and beautiful there, and the drive to the church takes you through narrow and pretty village road.

    The House is rather smaller than what I had expected. However, they are holding individual guide for each visitor/group. small kids before school ages seem to enjoy the tale of Mr. Clutterbuck. Two outdoor car race tracks are available. One for kids under 100cm and the other for little elder one.
