Lammassaari – summer retreat for nature lovers

A bit weird island basically in the city, but when you step in, you just cant believe that you are on same planet! Little cottages dotted under shades of big trees. The cottages are regulated by the city for very small size – hardly a one room, that they stay for only a temporary use. Because of very small size you could think that there is the gnomes peaking from the window. But it is only a citizens having a nice day in their summer retreats. You are welcome to visit on island but stay on path and don`t go too close to cottages.

There is no road to Lammassaari island. You have to walk about kilometer from land on log bridge, over the marshland. Entry point is from “vanhankaupungin koski”. You can see big pedestrian bridge stretching to east side to “pornaistenniemi”. Small path will lead you to start point.
