In 1842, Tsar Nicholas I established the first nature reserve in Finland in the area surrounding the Imatrankoski Rapids. The best way to get to know the Kruununpuisto Park is to follow the marked Historic Trail. Imperial lookout pavilions, rock carvings, potholes etc.
The new City Brook in Imatra
Within the vicinity of the Imatrankoski Power Plant in the Kruununpuisto (Crown Park) area, a kilometre-long City Brook has been built which brings the area's history and geology to the fore. The brook divides into a scenic upper course and natural lower course, which also has trout.
