“One of my favorite places in Finland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a wonderful place to visit. Once we made our way around the construction equipment and into the woods, we were transported to a different time. Do make sure to talk to a docent. We heard some great stories and learned lots from the man who was there when we were. It seems a simple place for a Tsar, but it is easy to understand why he loved it.

The lodge itself is not very large but is beautifully constructed and furnished with natural materials. There are a couple of other buildings but the other one to note is the chapel. If you have time, sit on the porch of the fishing lodge and soak up the atmosphere. You will be refreshed.

“Apparently they did their own cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is a real must-see. It's a homely little cottage which seems incongruous that the Emperor of all the Russias stayed at! But the surroundings are fantastic and the whole experience is worth taking up.

“A Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Very great place near City of Kotka. An old Fishing Lodge of Russian Tsar. A Beautifull place with a great history when Finland was a part of Old Russia. Even the Tsar of Russia were interested about of a beutifull Finland. ( Like those thousands of nowaday russians).

“exciting history in most awesome surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Awesome nature and historic surroundings on a little island in middle of thundering rapids. The past and the exciting stories of the Russian royal family's life in this wooden summer house over a century ago will become even more alive, if you ask for a guide.

“White waters and Russian royalty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

The poor emperor and empress had a crap architect so their beds didn't fit in the room side by side. They had to sleep head to head. This log "palace" is sure to impress and the scenery is amazing. I'm sure anyone would love to stroll aroud the property with all the small wooden bridges and running water everywhere.
