VisitKouvola - What are you waiting for?
Kouvola is BIG on experience. Whether you prefer culture or sports, urban amusement or the great outdoors, Kouvola has got you covered.
But if we had to pick just one thing (we know, we know, it’s almost impossible…), it would have to be nature.
Finland, of course, is the “land of thousands of lakes” – and we have dips on over 450 of them. Along the shorelines you’ll find over 7,000 summer cottages (also rental) that go a long way of showing what the “Finnish Way of Life” is all about. (Hint: this involves sauna.)
The legendary Repovesi National Park is a simply a must for every nature-lover, as is the Mustila Arboretum. What’s more, both attractions are known for being quite family-friendly, too.
In addition, Kouvola boasts its very own UNESCO World Heritage site, the Verla Mill – and after a tour at the venerable Verla, perhaps a quick stop at Tykkimäki Amusement Park and/or Aqua Park? (Okay, okay, we know it won’t be a ‘quick’ stop.)
What else is there? Well, you can golf, go rock-climbing, take in a midnight concert at Hiidenvuori or check out the mighty Kymi River…tour the local museums and mansions, or go shopping!
Here’s even more good news: Kouvola is right around the corner! Take a train from Helsinki and you’ll be here in less than 90 minutes.
And you need that time to study up on the local attractions – take our word for it.
