Experience the traditional Ostrobothnian red houses

 

Ostrobothnian red houses are considered to be exellent example of peasant carpender skills. They tell about peasant wealth.......... and can be compared? ......to the manor houses of their time. A similar phenomenon is unknown elsewhere in Finland, and there is no full value anywhere in the world. They are unique pearls in Finnish building heritage.
