In Etelänkylä, you can cross the river along the oldest wooden Aframe bridge still in use in Finland. The bridge, completed in the spring of 1837, is a national road museum site. It is 77.5 meters long and 5.8 meters wide. Regular maintenance and repairs ensure the condition of the bridge – the latest repair made in 2018–2019. The 1987 studies revealed that the bridge still had original logs that had been supporting the bridge for 150 years at the time.
