Kummakivi is a huge, approximately 7 meters long, boulder that is oddly balancing on a smaller, round rock. It touches the other rock with so little surface that it looks like a giant balancing on one toe. What makes it special is the fact that it stayed there, balancing for millions of years. Lots of people tried to move it, even with dynamite, but all in vain.

If just seing a magnificent rock in the middle of nowhere doesn't excite you, remember that sometimes the journey is more important than destination. The journey to this strange rock can be done along a beautiful landscape, crossing the "moss bridge" built in 1930 over the lake. Kummakivi is located 30 km from centre of Ruokolahti.
