Repovesi, Tykkimäki, Verla, Mustila, Poikilo-museot. Are you wondering what I’m going on about? These five names are some of the top attractions around Kouvola, Finland. Kouvola is the perfect mix of urban living and natural landscapes, making it a fantastic destination in southeast Finland.
Back to those names above: Repovesi is a national park, filled with splendid lakes and forests of birch and pine. Tykkimäki Amusement Park is the perfect place to bring the family in the summertime. Verla Groundwood and Board Mill is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where visitors can take a look at the inner workings of the former mill. The Arboretum Mustila is another great summer destination, where you can check out a variety of blossoming flowers. And lastly, the Poikilo-museot is an excellent museum that was built in 1987.
So now that you have some local attractions in mind, let’s take a look at some of the top Airbnb accommodations in Kouvola.
