Imatra Waterfall, Imatra
(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Imatra Waterfall and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Imatra trip builder.

  • Located in the heart of the city. Summer run regularly under the Sibelius music or contemporary groups. Impressive. In winter only on holidays. But the impression more strong in winter. Like in the year 2017 due to renovations will not launch, but this information needs to be clarified.

  • Frankly, so-so, not smotert'. Interestingly, when the evening open shutters and water carried along. Nothing more.

  • River Vuoksi and Imatrankoski (Rapids of Imatra) were born 5700 years ago (3700-3800 BCE). Really want to go and see the power of running water. The summer 2016 was not always open for restoration works. You have to devere schedules on the internet. You can also make nice walks around Imatrankoski on a small island between the two river beds of the river Vuoksi. I would highly recommend.
