At the outskirts of Kotka you can visit the former russian imperial fishing lodge. I would adwise to do this on a sunny day in order to see the nice nature, as the former lodge is not worth to pay 6€.

Small vacation manor and accompanying buildings, built in 1888 by the Kymi River for Tzar Alexander III of Russia (who ruled the Grand Duchy of Finland as part of the Russian Empire). This is a wonderful place to be in nature, yet very close to Kotkansaari. Lovely river rapids, forest trails, spots to bird watch and tour the inside of... More

This old imperial fishing lodge where Alexander III, tzar of Russia, spent summers with his family, is a nice destination for a day trip at least in the summer time. The buildings are quite modest for imperial standards, but the family probably enjoyed the more "normal" life here. The environment is beautiful with the forests and the fast running rapid.... More

I think this is the most interesting place in the area. "museum" is meh and not worth the price, but scenery and short walks around are amazing.

When we visited Langinkoski in July we were lucky (!) that it has been rainy days before our visit and the rapid or river was full of water! It was really nice scenery. This short briefing after buying tickets to Imperial Cottage of Russian Csar Alexander was pretty useful and demonstrative. This cottage was built by Finnish carpenters. It has... More

This is probably the best known tourist attraction in Kotka. It is a massive fishing lodge built by the czar Alexander III roughly 100 years ago. It is a nicer place when there is plenty of water in yhe river, which the case usually. A bit of walking but very and well maintained paths. There is also a park around... More

The fishing lodge is situated amidst breathtakingly beautiful nature: forest, white rapids... The imperial fishing lodge itself is a beautiful wooden building - with associated buildings such as a chapel and a warden' lodgings, all very charming. You can take a walk on the grounds, enjoy the amazing nature, sit down for a coffee (there are two cafes) - and... More

I wouldnt call it a museum, its just wooden house to see, but its amazing what people can do from wood. And the nature outside the house is worth the stop!

Just liked this place, the traditional wooden house with original interieur and the beautiful natures with its rapids around. Don't miss to eat some cake in the lovely Café Keisarinnajan kahvila at the parking lot!
