Tiilikkajärvi National Park

Low vegetation at the lakeshore, there are forest in autumn colours on the opposite shore. The sky is cloudy.

The drawn emblem of Tiilikkajärvi National Park. Depicted on the oval emblem are etchings on the Täyssinä peace treaty border stone. Circling the outer rim of the emblem are the words Tiilikkajärvi kansallispuisto nationalpark.The park's lovely lakeshores include the beautiful beach of Venäjänhiekka (Russian Sands), whose name relates to the 1595 Treaty of Teusina which divided these lands between Sweden and Russia. An old border stone in Lake Tiilikkajärvi still bears a crown and a cross symbolising the two countries. A sandy esker ridge formation runs through the lake, adding to the varied natural scene. Slow down, relax, and enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake.

Suitability: For independent hikers who love nature. Even terrain but no services for the physically disabled.
