There are certain natural occurrences in the world that leave us all scratching our heads. One such natural wonder is Kummakivi, a geological formation found in the dense forests of Finland. The mystifying sight is that of a giant rock performing an unbelievable balancing act on a seemingly smooth, curved mound. There is still no scientific explanation for how the rock, whose given name translates as “strange rock” in Finnish, has wound up in such a perplexing position, but doesn’t it look unusual?


Some Finnish folklore explains the odd locations of these giant stones by saying that trolls (or giants) carried, threw or rolled them there.




Location. Valtola, Southern Savonia, Finland
