Nestorinranta – the place immortalised in song

An old song loved by the Finns is based on a true story that took place on the Nestorinranta grounds in the 1960s.

A man called Nestori Reponen lived in the village and had his sauna where Nestori's Cabin currently stands.

Nestori used to play his accordion while heating the sauna, and once it so happened that a ringed seal climbed onto a rock nearby to listen.

The Saimaa ringed seal was on the verge of extinction in the 1970s. However, thanks to extensive conservation measures, over 300 ringed seals now live in Lake Saimaa – with luck, you can see one yourself in the waters near Nestorinranta.
