Catch the sights in Loviisa!
It is wonderful just to wander around in Loviisa, but there are some unique sights you do not want to miss.
For example, the beautiful market square and its surroundings, the central library and its ceiling paintings, the Kappelinpuisto Park, town museum, old lower town, Suolatori (the ”Salt square”) and the Laivasilta area with old salt warehouses.
Other points of interest are the Myllyharju windmill and the Kukkukivi tower, a panorama lookout over the sea, the church and the old Strömfors Iron Works.
The fortress bastions Ungern and Rosen are grand landmarks of Loviisa town centre. Designed by Augustin Ehrensvärd, the construction of the fortresses to safeguard the eastern border of Sweden was started in 1748.
According to the original plan, the whole town would have been surrounded by the fortress, but only a part of the construction was finished. The bastions Ungern and Rosen were almost done, as well as their earthfill embankments. The ruined walls of the bastions have been repaired often over time, and both of them are presently used as recreation areas.
The beautiful Ehrensvärd’s trail starting from the Rosen and Ungern fortresses is of historical interest. Along the twokilometre hiking route you can enjoy nature and study the different stages of the fortress construction.
Starting points are at Ungernintie or Urheilutie. You can get a map of the trail from the Tourist Office.
