Kultisalmi, the Lapp-Peasant Farmer Boundary

At Kultisalmi, which was in the past the boundary between lands settled by the Sámi and peasant farmers, visitors can see traces of the fishing culture that was there during the Sámi Era. At Kultisalmi Sound there are the remnants of a fishing dam, along which a fishing net was pulled across the sound. There is also a cemetery near Kultisalmi.
