Ruovesi: Runeberg´s Spring
Runeberg’s Spring is a spring at the end of the Runebergintie road. The spring is one of Finland’s major natural history sights and it was a meeting place even before Runeberg’s time. J. L. Runeberg lived in Ruovesi and worked as a home teacher. His poem, Vid en Källa (At a Spring), was inspired by this spring. There is a nature trail to the spring. “The Poetry Trail” is an atmospheric trail about 600 meters long going from Runeberg’s spring to Ruovesi Harbour.
