Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Venturi is a huge shopping centre with everything you could possibly need. I was really surprised that a place like this exists in Kouvola. I will definitely go again!

    After visiting World Heritage Site Verla near by, make small additional tour here. Art center is at old modern Church built in 1960s.
    There is changing exhibition every year, so making it interesting place to visit annually. 2020 has limited opening, only July and present art from Pekka Halonen, Ferdinand von Wright and miscellaneous pieces from early 20th century.
    Outside has Garden of Love, with sculptures.

    The city of Kouvola wants to be The Republic of Liquorice (Licorice) and The Liquorice Capital of the World because liquorice candies are a Finnish specialty nowadays and there are two liquorice factories in Kouvola. However, pharaohs in ancient Egypt already ate some kind of liquorice candies.

    Kouvolan Lakritsi (Kouvola Liquorice) is a traditional liquorice company. The factory was opened in 1906 in Vyborg but after the World War II the company was established in Kouvola. Their production in Kouvola started in 1945. They produce handmade carbon-neutral liquorice. Kouvolan Lakritsi was the world's first company which produced liquorice beer. They have produced habanero chili liquorice and sea salt liquorice, too. They also have sent liquorice out in the stratosphere.

    Kouvolan Lakritsi opened a factory outlet in November 2022. You can buy many different liquorice candies there, also gluten free products. Even liquorice tea and liquorice coffee are available. Later it will be possible to see there how liquorice is made. There is also a lunch restaurant in the building.

    Interesting surroundings for art exhibitions. Free entry. You can also rent paintings. Some small shops and a cafe as well. Worth visiting while in Kouvola. A little difficult to get there if you do not have a car.

    Lovely part of town, nice for walking and enjoying the atmosphere. "Museum quarter" is a bit misleading name. This is no museum, people live here! Sure there are small shops and museums in some of the buildings.

    There are actually two different museums, an art museum with exhibitions of all styles of art. Often they offer interesting viewpoints to local artists, but also some international artists as well.
    Other museum showcases different aspects of history and life of the area. Very playful ideas in showcasing past life.
