The Kouvola region, reachable with a 1h20min train connection to both the downtown Helsinki and Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, and with a 2h20min train connection to St.Petersburg, is an ideal location for your business and leisure. 

We were recently labelled with an official EU-status as the northernmost transport node in EU, within so called “Ten-T” network. It is emphasizing Kouvola’s already strong status as Finland’s most important Rail Road-terminal with the best connection to the eastern corridors. The City of Kouvola’s plan for the extension of RRT terminal will create a European smart dry port multiplying logistics service structure and freight capacity. Rail connections to all directions make it legitimate to say; Kouvola, the best connected city of Finland!

All this is surrounded by nature attractions and great places to stay for leisure; one of Finland’s largest natural parks, Repovesi, UNESCO World Heritage site Verla paper mill museum, and Tykkimäki amusement park to name a few of them. Finland’s most beloved Icehockey team “KooKoo” is here, as well as two other top league teams of basketball and baseball. Opportunities for sports activities are endless, all reachable in minutes which amazed me greatly when returning back to Kouvola after living 35 years in the Helsinki region and abroad.

Kouvola Innovation’s experts are here to connect you with business of this well-connected city. We want to help you with all effort in relocating or establishing your business in our area.

Come and join the development!
