The Eastern Gulf of Finland national park. A Black guillemot is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Itäinen Suomenlahti kansallispuisto - national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
In spring huge flocks of arctic geese and waterfowl pass through these waters on their way northeast, creating an amazing natural spectacle. In the summer the area's old fishing villages come to life, and visitors can hear tall tales of trading, smuggling and wartime exploits from days gone by.

Suitability: Particularly suitable for boaters, and hikers in good condition, because the terrain is mostly difficult. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Coastal and Metropolitan Area.
