It'll probably be nice after the renovation, but at the moment not a single church is accessible, and big parts of the park are off-limits. There are still 10-15 wooden houses to visit, but once you've seen a few, they all start to look similar....More

About 90% under restoration including the main attraction the largest structure. A church. A big disappointment but the few places five or six are really great. Don't don't know if I would waste the time or money as an independent traveler to do it again....More
