Webmasters Note:
Unfortunately there is very little factual information -- if any at all -- available about this World Heritage site, so all I can do is showing you the site specific stamps. The souvenir sheet, with print in Finnish, Swedish, and English, gives no information, except that the site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. If you need further information about this site, for educational purposes or tourism, please consult the Finnish Embassy, consular section, in your country. 

Other World Heritage Sites in Finland (on this site). Please refer to the UNESCO-listing, section Finland for further information about the individual properties.
