  • Fisherman’s Ethnographic Manor – The main building of the fisherman’s ethnographical manor is a dwelling house, built in 1900. In the beginning of the 80’s, it was destroyed by ice-floes. The family that lived there was evacuated, and the restored house became the ethnographic manor. All premises are fitted out just the way there were, when fishermen lived there. You can see their furniture, dishes and other household items. Four different fishing boats are shown there as well. All of them are genuine.
