Piispankivi memorial

The Piispankivi memorial stone is built for honouring the events of the World War Two. On the 4th of Juky in 1943 the partisans of the Soviet Union attacted a bus which was heading to the north. The memorial stone is named after Yrjö Wallinmaa, a bishop of Oulu diocese, who got killed in the attact. Also a stream in the accident place, Piispanoja, is named after the bishop.
There are guide signs telling about the attact in Piispanoja close to the Piispankivi memorial stone. There is also a parking place next to the stream so it is easy to visit the place by car.
