Särkänniemi to add section based on characters of popular children's author
Särkänniemi, in Tampere, Finland, has announced plans to open a new section of the theme park based on the characters of popular children's author Mauri Kunnas. The new addition, entitled Koiramäki, or "Doghill," will feature cartoon dogs Kunnas characterized in "The Canine Kalevala," a children's rendition of the classic Finnish epic poem "The Kalevala," and other books. The 5-million-euro investment will include a canine city, a castle, a farm, a stable and a stage. Park officials hope to have the attraction open by the start of the summer season, April 27.
