A significant Finnish national monument in which the Finnish national writer Aleksis Kivi spent his last months in the care of his brother’s family. This very modesst cottage, where Aleksis Kivi died, reminds us what the Tuusula Lake Road looked before the famous villa habitation and artists’ community. Close by is a beautiful Fjällbo park by the lake, Erkkola Artist Villa and Lotta Museum.
