Virtakiven Sauna Cafe (Virtakiven sauna ja kahvila) is situated only 200 meters from Virtakivi Yacht Harbor. There are nice walking and observation places there. So the cafe and the harbor are a good excursion place from the city center of Kouvola. We had a bike...trip from the city center to Kuusankoski and then to Virtakivi in Voikkaa (less than 15 kilometers in one direction). Biking routes are very good.
It was very relaxing to take a rest in Virtakiven Sauna Cafe. The building is the old sauna, laundry room and bakery building of a factory and it was built in 1925. I love the rustic atmosphere. The cafe isn't too polished.
They have indoor tables, a large summer terrace and a container bar. River view is very beautiful. Next week they are going to start river cruises, too. They also have a small boutique with local products, e.g. coffee from Inka Roastery which is situated in the same building. The top of everything is good food in the cafe. I loved their homemade cloudberry cake very much!More
