Tuonela is the Underworld, The Realm of The Dead, in Finnish mythology. Like other Underworlds from mythology, it sits on an island and is reached by crossing a river. It is ruled over by the God Tuoni, and His Wife, Tuonetar, who serves as Ferrywoman and Hostess. This realm appears in the Kalevala when Väinämöinen travels there seeking knowledge.

The creation of the world according to Kalevala; At first there was only primal waters and sky.  But sky also had a daughter named Ilmatar. A bird laid 6 golden and 1 iron eggs on Ilmatar's knee. As the bird incubated her eggs, the heat became too hot and the eggs fell and shattered. Land was formed from the lower part of one of the eggshells. The egg whites turned into the moon and stars and the yolk became the sun.
