Repovesi and Verla area

We’ve heard that not every town has a World Heritage Site. Well yes, Moscow has something called the Kremlin and Red Square, Rome has its historical centre and somewhere in Athens is the Acropolis. In Kouvola, we have the Verla Groundwood and Board Museum, and from there it is not a long journey to Repovesi, the site of our own national park.
