Kuusankoski Things to Do
The church in Kuusankoski was built in 1929 and has been renovated in 1988. The church is situated in the middle of the town and from the tower you can see the town in every direction.
There's place for 1269 people inside the church. The great acoustics offer a good base for different kind of concerts and events.
On weekdays from 10 am till 16 pm (only in summer) there's a guide in the church who'll tell you all about the history, architecture and arts of the church.
The new library in Kuusankoski was built in 2002. It's seems huge inside with dozens of book shelves, the area being 1891 m2. The library is located by the river Kymi, right next to Kuusankoski House (see my other Things to Do tip).
Kuusankoski-talo (Kuusankoski House) is the cultural center of Kuusankoski. Everything that happens in Kuusankoski, happens here. Built in 1985 Kuusankoski House is situated by the river Kymi. There are theatre, concert hall, cafe, art gallery and meeting rooms for all kind of occasions and also a movie theatre and a library on the premises.
This restaurant serves lunch on weekdays at 11-14. There is a buffet table with various salads and two main courses to choose from. The lunch also includes tea/coffee and a dessert. The lunch varies daily. The interior is very glamorous and stylish with beautiful, old-fashioned furniture. It's a shame they're open only on weekdays and for lunch.
Kotipizza is a big Finnish chain of pizzerias. They make pizzas, pan pizzas, sallads and calzones ("kotzones" in their list) which are all quite nice. I have also been very pleased in their customer service.
Favorite Dish: Hmm... usually I get Iskender Kebab (kebab meat, bread pieces, yoghurt sauce, tomato sauce, sallad...) or some kind of a calzone ("baked-in" pizza) when I'm there. All of the steaks are also very nice.
Unless you are not travelling by a car, then probably the easiest way to get to Kuusankoski is to take a train to Kouvola and then take a bus to Kuusankoski (departing right in front of the station twice in an hour), I think the bus fare is around 2 euros.
