The islands of Jungfruskär- biosphere Reserve


The island of Jungfruskär - Excursions to the Unesco biosphere Reserve
Jungfruskär is a group of islands, located in the middle of the sound Kihti, about 15 M from Korppoo island.

Jungfruskär is a part of the Finnish municipality Parainen/The town of Pargas. The islands of Jungfruskär are located near several busy channels and have provided shelter for many seafarers through the centuries. According to old tales, one of the islands was also home to a seafarers' tavern during the Swedish rule. Today, ancient monuments from several epochs constitute proof that Jungfruskär once was a "maritime centre of culture" (Westerdahl C, 1980).
