The Lace Veil of Pallivaha

The Lace Veil of Pallivaha

2011

One hundred years ago this was common knowledge everywhere: this was the best and the most romantic spot for a Sunday picnic in the entire city of Turku. As the years passed, the forest had grown and the only people who knew the place were students from nearby school and people in neighbourhoods.

To highlight and illuminate this place out for common knowledge again, Turku365 built a 400 kg lace veil on top of the boulder and invited everyone in Turku to come and enjoy it for a picnic with free picnic bags and maps. Over one thousand names and memories were written in the guestbook by the boulder.

The opening picnic was held on July 14th with a harpist playing on the boulder. The lace stayed on the boulder until August 25th. Turku365 reminds that the boulder of Pallivaha is still a great destination for a picnic or other adventure!
