This is another photo of the old traditional Finnish house.
The Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum is an outdoor museum that offers information, specimens of skill and experiences in an original pre-industrial environment. Visitors will step 200 years back in time at the museum.
The area serves as Turku's handicrafts history and outdoor museum. Over 30 workshops from different fields of craftmanship display the City's handicrafts history and craftsmen's dwellings. Luostarinmäki is unique due to its old buildings and its workshops that have been furnished by handicrafts masters of different fields of craftsmanship. Luostarinmäki is the "Old City" of Turku since it is the only unified part of the City that survived the conflagration of 1827.
During the summer season, the museum's workshops have craftsmen working there every day. The museum's shops, postal office and cafeteria serve customers round the year. The highlight of the year are the Handicrafts Days in August. During the days, masters of different professions, i.e. Golden Apple Guild masters and apprentices get together and their products are sold in the museum's shops.
The Handicrafts Museum is an internationally renowned tourism attraction. In 1984, the museum was awarded the "Golden Apple" prize by FIJET, the tourism industry writers and reporters association.

This is another beautiful photo of Finland! Even though this scene is from the museum, for me the Turku region is a wonderful combination of the most modern and the traditional.
All of the details that you include here so intelligently, and the way you use the DOF so effectively make this a gem. Also, the colours are so pleasingly included in your composition. Thank you.
