In English:

Paateri – hidden gem in Finland

Why hidden? Because few people know it and visit there. Paateri, que actualmente es un museo, fue el estudio y hogar de la artista y escultora Eva Ryynänen. Eva Ryynänen lived June 15, 1915 – October 18, 2001. Ryynänen’s studio is located in Vuonislahti, 28 km / 17.4 mi from Lieksa towards Joensuu. Easiest way to visit Paateri is to rent a car. Otherwise you have to take the train, bus or air plane to Joensuu and continue either by train or bus.

Eva Ryynänen was specialist in wood art. This means that she has made more than 500 sculptures of which 50 are abroad. In this post I show you her studio and home house. Personally, I raise my hat for her self-built church. It is something which I never had seen elsewhere. I have made a post about it for a long time ago and after photos I give you link to it. It is absolutely worth for seeing – believe me! If You visit these areas, visit also Open-air museum in Lieksa. Link after photos.

¿Por qué escondido? Porque pocas personas lo saben y visitan allí. Paateri, que actualmente es un museo, fue el estudio y hogar de la artista y escultora Eva Ryynänen. Eva Ryynänen vivió el 15 de junio de 1915 – 18 de octubre de 2001. El estudio de Ryynänen se encuentra en Vuonislahti, a 28 km / 17,4 mi de Lieksa hacia Joensuu. La forma más fácil de visitar Paateri es alquilar un carro. De lo contrario, debe tomar el tren, el autobús o el avión a Joensuu y continuar en tren o autobús.

Eva Ryynänen fue especialista en arte en madera. Esto significa que ella ha realizado más de 500 esculturas de las cuales 50 están en el extranjero. En este post te muestro su estudio y casa. Personalmente, me quito el sombrero para su iglesia que ella ha hecho por ella misma. Es algo que nunca había visto antes en otro lado. He hecho una entrada del blog, hace mucho tiempo y después de las fotos le dará el enlace. Merece la pena ver verlo, ¡créame! Si visitará estas áreas, visite también el museo al aire libre en Lieksa. Haga clic en el vínculo después de las fotos, por favor.

Paateri – joyau caché en Finlande

Pourquoi caché? Parce peu de gens la connaissent Paateri, qui est aujourd’hui le musée, était le studio et la maison de l’artiste et sculpteur Eva Ryynänen. Eva Ryynänen a vécu du 15 juin 1915 au 18 octobre 2001. Le studio de Ryynänen est situé à Vuonislahti, à 28 km de Lieksa en direction de Joensuu. Le moyen le plus facile de visiter Paateri, est de louer une voiture. Sinon, vous devez prendre le train, le bus ou l’avion pour Joensuu et ensuite continuer en train ou en bus.

Eva Ryynänen était spécialiste de l`art de la sculpture sur bois. Cela signifie qu’elle a réalisé plus de 500 sculptures dont 50 à l’étranger. Dans ce post, je vous montre son studio et sa maison. Personnellement, je lève mon chapeau á sa propre église, qu’elle a fait par elle-même. Ç’est une chose que je n’avais jamais vu ailleurs. J’ai posté un article à ce sujet il y a longtemps et après des photos, je vous donnerair le lien. Cela vaut absolument la peine d’être vu – croyez-moi! Si vous visiterez ces régions, visitez également le musée en plein air de Lieksa. Le lien est après mes photos. Cliquez-la, s’il vous plaît.

  14. I have always found that the Scandinavian countries are a very underestimated destination. The most beautiful woodwork (and Scandinavian design) I’ve seen during my travels in the past are found in the rural parts of Finland. This proofs it!

    Comment by Herman van Bon Photography — September 11, 2019 @ 20:19 | Reply

    • Hello Herman.

      Thank you. Rural parts – yes, that is nice keyword. I understand that many visiting Helsinki, think that this it was all and now I know Finland. This is understandable, because we are in hurry and rush from place to place. Every country offers something different on country sides and in towns. Both are worth for an experience.

      Have a nice day!

      Merci de faire une pause sur mon blog. Je suis ravi que mes photos vous plaisent. La Finlande offre une grande variété d’art du bois. Les plus populaires d’entre eux sont les ours sculptés! Nous avons également des concours de sculpture d’ours. Voici un exemple:
