Introduction
The island of Seurasaari is a popular outdoor recreation area and open-air museum. It was made a public park in 1890 and quickly became a popular place for picnics and parties. The people of Helsinki were introduced to many new things such as photography, ice-cream and fireworks at Seurasaari. To begin with people had to take a boat to the island, but a bridge was built in 1892. Seurasaari receives tens of thousands of visitors a year. The Midsummer celebration is particularly popular.

Seurasaari is a wooded island with rocks, hills, wetlands and herb-rich forests. The animals on the island are accustomed to people, but the southern shore is protected during the nesting season. Seurasaari covers about 46 hectares.
