In the vicinity of Oulu, at a distance of about 35 km, is a museum and a recreated site of a primitive man - “Kiyerikki”. This Stone Age Center talks about Finnish culture and the lives of people in that era.
Already in the 4th millennium BC permanent settlements of people began to appear in Kierikki, whose numbers were growing quite rapidly and whose main way of obtaining food was by hunting for seals.
The Kierikki building is one of the largest log structures in the world. It hosts various congresses and conferences. The hotel has recently opened for tourists. At the restaurant you can try homemade Finnish dishes, and at the store you can buy unique souvenirs and gifts.
Near the Center, based on archaeological excavations conducted in this area, a Stone Age Village was erected. The trails leading to the forest from the Village will lead you past bird traps and animals from the prehistoric era.
Visitors to Kierikki are also waiting for the old shooting range, where an experienced instructor will teach everyone to the art of archery. And in the workshop you can try yourself in the role of a master, having seen how arrowheads were made in prehistoric times from improvised materials.
