The ancient villages of Karelia are the custodians of centuries-old folk epics, epics about heroes and wizards, intricate fairy tales and mystical legends. Here, like many centuries ago, in every lake there lives a merman, which you can cajole by inviting him to your fish soup; the villages are home to kegris, a local brownie, and even the baths have their own spirits. Stories are told about them, or rather, rune singers sing, accompanying them on strings and wind instruments.
