Rapola Hill Fort (Finland)

Rapola Hill Fort (Finland)

Hill forts or “castles” were places were people took refuge during a time of danger. They were located on steep hills or ridges and quite often also fortified.

Rapola hill fort is the oldest and largest in Finland. It was built during the Viking age and area it covers is 400 meters long and 200 meters wide.

7-8 A view from an observation post towards lake Vanajavesi. I guess that approaching raiding parties were rather easy to spot from here. .
