What's New!

Hvitträsk, in Luoma, Kirkkonummi (tel. 09/405-096- 30), the studio home of architects Eliel Saarinen, Armas Lindgren, and Herman Gesellius, was built of logs and natural stone, and ranks among the most remarkable architectural creations of its time. The artistic unity of the house with its forest surroundings was a remarkable achievement. Today it’s used as a center for exhibits of Finnish art and handicrafts. A first-rate restaurant, Hvitträsk (tel. 09/297-60- 33), is open Tuesday to Thursday noon to 8pm and Friday to Monday noon to 6pm. Admission to the center is 5€ ($8) for adults, 4€ ($6.40) for students; free for kids 17 and under. It’s open daily from 11am to 6pm. To get here, take bus no. 166 from the Central Bus Station, Platform 62, and then walk about 2km (1 1/4 miles). Or take the train to Luoma, and then walk about 2km (1 1/4 miles). By car, follow the Jorvas motorway about 20km (12 miles), turn off at the Kivenlahti exit, drive about 5km (3 miles) toward Kauklahti, and then follow the Hvitträsk signs.
