About Mathildedal


Tucked between the lush Teijo National Park with fresh water Matilda Lake and the beautiful Baltic Sea, Mathildedal village stands out. The tight knit community organizes and hosts concerts, gigs, art exhibitions, theatre and many other events and parties throughout the year.

Mathildedal is a mix of old and new. Once an ironworks village, it is now home to many small businesses – in fact, most of the 130 full time residents are entrepreneurs. During the summertime, the village’s population almost triples with most Finns spending their holidays at their summer cottages. Mathildedal is a warm, welcoming, and cozy village that offers a taste of peace, harmony, and fun.
