Imatra Waterfall, Imatra

4.3
#1 of 91 in Nature in Finland
View the power of water at Imatra Waterfall, used for hydroelectricity since 1929. These rapids once were turned on year-round, but now they operate seasonally to harness the water's force. Though war and industrialization have worn away at the city and its attractions, the falls are still an impressive sight.

  • What a nice site! A fall air, a path that allows to follow the watercourse, a shaded alley and open views. A very nice walk in this small town that exudes the tranquility!

  • The imatrankoski Rapids are is just indescribably wonderful. This summer, the dam is under renovation so there will not be, and obviously on shows in the summer of 2018. K is kuivanakin really fantastic, even scary. White water rafting in the environment is located in the Crown and the State of the hotel which is also worth a visit.

  • In my opinion, to call these waterfalls, not worth it. Of course, when there is nothing more to see, and this kind of place is cluttered with legends, stories and fictions and prettier than they sound, the more the importance of the find. But ... the city itself is a small, cosy, clean and insanely quiet; much more interesting just for a stroll on the streets than listening to stories about utoplennicah and fishermen.
