Location: Guidance sign to the destination when driving from highway 18 to the southwest of Ventäläntie

Laurinlakso’s Escape Sauna is a place from the time of the Greater Wrath where the civilian population fled the terror perpetrated by the occupiers. There are several versions associated with this place, which, however, essentially go this way; Napue’s pregnant mistress and her maid fled enemy troops to this sauna. A local informant went and guided the six Cossacks to the sauna. The doorway was very low, which was why the Cossacks had to bend down to enter. The determined maid took turns killing them with a birch log and immersing the bodies in a nearby swamp.
