Experience mikkelipuisto park

The Kaihu Trail of Kaihunharju is accessible from Mikkelipuisto Park and next to the parking area of the park is the Saimaa Geopark signpost.

Three panels in the sign open up different contents on your mobile device (a series of panels beginning with the title “Discover the hidden treasures of Lake Saimaa”). You need the free Salmi AR app to view the content. Content includes pictures, videos, audio narration, and peepholes. You’ll find information about Suvorov’s time, wartime, and industrialization, and get to see what the area looked like 11,000 years ago and how the ancestors lived. The contents are currently available only in Finnish.
