Do you like stories and cartoons about Moomins? There is a real place where you can visit them—a lighthouse island, Söderskär. Many believe that it is the place described in the book Moominpappa and the Sea.

The island is around a 2-hour boat trip from Helsinki. You can come for a day trip or even stay for the night.

Another Moomin-themed park dedicated to Tove Jansson characters is Moomin World. It is also located in the sea, on the Kailo Island near the town of Naantali. Its main attraction is the blue Moomin house, where children can roam freely. The park features lots of interesting activities for all ages.
