Spend your summerdays in Loviisa!

The small town of Loviisa on the southern coast of Finland offers a lot of activities for the whole family until the end of the summer. The sea fortress of Svartholma is the number one summer destination. On the island you can familiarize yourself with the history of the sea fortress for example on guided tours. They are arranged in English upon request during the Finnish tour at 1.30 p.m. and the Swedish tour at 3 p.m. You can also visit the exhibition of the fortress. It is free of charge and open from 11 a.m.–5.30 p.m. These services are available from Wednesdays to Sundays until August 13th 2017. The ferry to Svartholma operates six times a day and starts from Laivasilta pier until August 6th.

Loviisa is less than an hour’s drive east from Helsinki, but in July you can also cruise your way to the summertown! The ship m/s J.L. Runeberg cruises from Helsinki Market Square to Loviisa Laivasilta on Thursday July 27th 2017 at 10 a.m. During the voyage the ship also makes stops at Pellinki and Kabböle.

In the city you can search for the small doors of the little folk of Loviisa that are hidden around the town. The path of the little folk in Loviisa opens doors to a world of imagination. You can get the map for the Path of the little folk from the Loviisa Tourist Office.

The old Strömfors Iron Works offers a lot of programme especially on summer Saturdays. Interesting forging demonstrations with the historical water hammer are arranged in the upper forge in Strömfors Iron Works on Saturdays at 12 noon–2 p.m. until August 26th 2017. You can also go on a cruise on Kymijoki River from Strömfors Iron Works. Join the cruise that goes through the wonderful landscape on Saturday July 29th. The music event Ruukki Rock ‘n’ Bike Festival is arranged for the first time on Friday and Saturday July 28th–29th 2017. Also visit the Forge Museum, the church, the restaurants and the small handicraft shops in the area.
