Portaan Nahkurinverstas

At Portaan Nahkurinverstas, a former tannery shop, you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of an idyllic countryside village. The old tannery - established in 1880's - serves now as a museum where it's possible to experience in an authentic environment how the tanners, shoemakers and saddlers worked and lived in the past centuries. All the machinery, several smaller tools and some products made in the tannery are still left in the building. In the museum building there is also a restaurant serving drinks and food which is made on site of local, fresh ingredients. Coffee, refreshments, pastries, ice cream etc. are also available. Both museum and restaurant are regularly open in summer, and in other seasons on request. Accommodation is available throughout the year. Spacious apartments are located in an old, beautifully refurbished building where the employees of the tannery used to live in the past. Now the old fashioned style of the building is combined with the modern facilities. Traditional, firewood-heated sauna is available for accommodation guests and can also be booked separately.
