What are we going to do

The traditional Mateli Day will be celebrated at Parppeinvaara on Saturday 22 July with guided tours and concerts in memory of the famous local runesinger Mateli Kuivalatar. The day will culminate in a concert by kantele player Hanna Ryynänen at the Parppeinpirtti Restaurant at 20.30. Tickets 20€/person.

Hanna Ryynänen is an expressive musician who plays a wide range of kanteles, from a 5-stringed small kantele to a 39-stringed concert kantele. Especially the Saarijärvi kantele is close to Hanna's heart thanks to its rich tone and inspiring playing style. Improvisation plays an important role in Hanna's artistic work and she loves to find new ways to play her instruments. Hanna works as a freelance musician and performs both solo and with her various ensembles. For more information about the performer, please visit https://hannaryynanenmusic.com/.

About Ilomantsin Museosäätiö - the Doer

Welcome to Parppeinvaara Rune Singer's Village!

Whatever your interest, Parppeinvaara has something for you. From its hilltop amid the forests and fells of Eastern Finland, there are views stretching for miles to the blue horizon, beyond which lies Russia. The tradition of poem-singing, Karelian cuisine, war-time events and nature in Ilomantsi are brought to life in the exhibitions and the buildings in Parppeinvaara Rune Singer's Village.

At Parppeinvaara you'll find a collection of historic buildings based on the theme of local tradition. These include the Rune Singer´s House with traditional music and exhibitions; the Border General´s Cabin, a war-time operational headquarters; Restaurant Parppeinpirtti with a Karelian menu; and a small Orthodox chapel. The exhibition of the Mesikkä Animal Museum revolves around the relationship between people and nature.
