This painting is in the local museum and was just confirmed to be genuine - earlier it was unclear. Possibly the most valuable object in this town.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


It's some twenty years since school times when we went there few times, so I don't remember if that ever was on display at those times. Could be, it's been in the museum since 50's and the current interest that lead to confirming it genuine started when a visiting expert was surprised to see it couple years ago, so it may not have packed away always before.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


This weekend we have "I'm from Mänttä" event, also dubbed "class reunion of whole town".
I think it's third such annual event, consisting of various markets, small concerts and art exhibitions/performances and bars being open longer than regularly.

On one hand it bugs me to be at home when for once something is happening around here, but on the other there's hardly anything particularly for me or at least it's so early I certainly won't drag myself out of bed by that time. I may take a quick walk to look around at some point.

Number of police stations have been shut down this year. The one in Mänttä was spared... sort of.

Our police station wasn't shut down. The personnel was just moved elsewhere.
That's right, we have station with zero people in there. Well, except that one comes from neighbor town couple times a week, so at monday mornings you can for few hours apply for passport etc. - making appointment is recommended - and at thursday mornings you can actually report a crime!

]XXII Mänttä Art Festival


In other news, an end of an era. The factory pipe, the most iconic landmark of this town, will retire later this year. It was erected 1932.

The factory's power plant has been renewed to use different fuels and a new third pipe will be added. (The new second pipe was added some years ago; decades earlier there was original "small pipe" that was removed.)
