I have never walked in a forest so wild and wonderful. Stone outcrops, lakes and streams, utter silence or just the sound of the wind in the trees. Absolutely wonderful! We saw many birds and butterflies and I was mesmerized by the echoing of the cuckoo calls through the trees. Bliss! Some areas are being 'maintained' ... harvested. Bring your wonder and your stamina as there are long trails and much to see and enjoy.

The largest model railroad exhibition in Finland with engines using real whistling sounds. The museum also features a wooden steam train, one of the three existing trains with Masson engine, running through 3 rooms on rails over 2.5 meters high! Visitors have an opportunity to act as engineers for the model trains, and see the development of railroad history. The cafe Onkapannu has always fresh ground coffee and delicious pastries. Museum is loca- ted right next to the railway station
Kouvola Model Railroad Museum is situated in the city center, only 100 meters from the railway station, in an old wooden school building (built in 1897). However, it may be a bit difficult to find it, because the entrance is from the inner ward of a block.
This is a wonderful place to see interesting model Railways. Children may hold the steering-wheel of trains or even run her or his own engine on the track.
There is also a cafe named Onkapannu in the same building. You get coffee, tea, homemade pastries, sandwiches and salty pastries there.

Verla was simply amazing. Situated by beautiful lakes and rapids, this late 19h century industrial milieu has frozen in time and offered our family a truly special journey to the beginning of industrial revolution. There are also arts and crafts stores, a wine and cider store, a bread store which were very nice. The exhibition with a one-hour guided tour was very good. An ideal place for a day trip.

Tykkimaki is an familial amusement park. Mostly designed for young children. Several rides for teenagers are available, but don't expect the super-duper-roller-coaster that will make you throw-away.
It's quite, and queues are nearly inexistant (yes, a dream today !!!).
Some attractions will bring back some souvenirs to the parents who will recognise refurbished ones from Linnanmaki (Helsinki).
The park is clean, and secure. With a good weather, you (and your kids) won't regret the day.

What an excellent shopping centre! There is absolutely everything you could imagine to buy from food, alcohol, shoes. homewares, Marimekko, Tokmanni, etc, and restaurants galore, I liked the Sinuhe restaurant. OK, no big clothing stores, but enough to find a bargain! Buzzing, bright and huge place and warm to wonder about on a cold winter's day.

Ankkapurha Culture Park introduces several attractions on both sides of Kymijoki river in Anjala and Inkeroinen villages. These attractions include Anjala manor and park, Makasiini Cafe in an old granary, Ankkapurha Industrial Museum, Anjala church and village, old school house Regina-koulu and several buildings and a primary school designed by Alvar Aalto. All attractions are close to each other.
Dreamy park. Wonderful green enclave. Across the street from famous Alvar Aalto's buildings and a nice contrast to the old factory nearby. Bought some gifts in the cafe of the Ankkapurha Culture Park and enjoyed the park very much. Signs say "Please walk on the grass!" )))

There is a very nice circle route named Korpin kierros in Niivermäki Nature Conservation Area. It is 2.1 kilometers long and starts just behind the shopping center Veturi, 200 meters from K-Rauta Ironmonger's (home improvement shop).
You don't need wellingtons (rubber boots), because there are boardwalks on the wettest passages. There is a low observation tower on the trail. If you are hiking with kids, you should be aware, because there is a cliff without a fence next to the observation tower.
There aren't any services in Niivermäki (not even dry toilets or waste baskets). So you have to use the services of the shopping center Veturi.
Niivermäki Nature Conservation Area is worth of a separate trip but it is also a nice resting place for drivers driving along the highway 6.

When you visit the Main Church in the city of Kouvola, you recognize it from a cross, but not very easily. This building looks like a box, but if you go in, you find out quite peaceful and harmonic room of God. There is a lot of light and space to have an experience, and that's why this church is worth of visiting. And if you manage to stay there during a music concert, acoustics is very good!

A nice little museum in the museum quarter of Kouvola. In the main building every room is dedicated to a particular decade, from 1920s to 1960s. Not only radio receivers are displayed (as may be suggested by the museum name) but also furniture and many household items of the corresponding epochs.
The second building is more like a museum storeroom, with long shelves of various radio equipment (including, for example, spy radio station in a suitcase).
Admission fee is 2 euros, a tour is included.
A little fly in the ointment: museum guides are not radio experts ("I am not a technical man, I am just a museum man..." - said he after I asked the next technical question), so if you are deeply interested in the history of radio technology, your answers may remain unanswered.

Проходя мимо, мы заглянули сюда на несколько минут. Внутри убранство довольно торжественное. Взгляд было сложно оторвать от красивых люстр. Посетителей кроме нас не было никого.
