Laukko Manor

Yesterday we visited the Laukko Manor together with friends. Beautifully situated in Vesilahti. It is an about two hour drive from Helsinki. We stayed there for 7 hours. We strolled around in the beautiful garden, visited all the buildings on the estate that were open for visitors, enjoyed the outdoor concert and had both lunch and coffee there. It was a great day. Best of all, after the long period of temperatures between 28–33 degrees Celsius it was only 22 yesterday as is also today. The short rain shower right when the concert started didn’t even bother us 🙂

The below text is from the Laukko pages.

The written history of Laukko manor dates back to year 1416. The present neo-classic manor house was built in the 1930s. The estate reopened to the public in the summer of 2016, as the estate celebrates its 600th anniversary. For the first time, visitors can see the estate in its entire splendor. The visitors can now admire the main building’s unique collections of arts and antiquities and stroll in the estate’s vast gardens and grounds.”

      Despite quite many visitors it was peaceful. It’s a relief that the heatwave is over, or almost, still a couple of really warm days in sight 🙂
