Kouvola is BIG on experience. Whether you prefer culture or sports, urban amusement or the great outdoors, Kouvola has got you covered.
If, however, 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 a thousand lakes” – and we have dibs 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.)
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 AquaPark? (Okay, okay, we know it won’t be a ‘quick’ stop.)
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.
