Svartå Manor, Mustio
An hour’s drive from Helsinki, Svartå Manor was built around an ironworks. The manor now serves as a haven for art, relaxation and cuisine, and old worker dwellings have been turned into guest accommodation.
The five historical buildings of the grounds all have their thrilling stories, including “The White Lady” ghost story. The Svartå Manor is essentially one huge art exhibition in a beautiful natural setting. Modern and classic sculptures blend beautifully with natural elements such as the water lily path.
The old wooden main building of Svartå Manor is now a museum, and an impressive one at that. Swedish King Gustav III even slept here at the end of the 18th century.
