Along the River Kymijoki
First there was the River Kymijoki. Then came the factories. The manufacture of paper has fallen and that of pulp has grown, but life continues in the old factory buildings.
Located in an idyllic spot by the river, the former sauna and laundry building of the Kymiyhtiö company’s staff now houses a summer café, a restaurant for private and corporate events, a coffee roastery, conference and exhibition rooms and a bar in the yard.
