Historical buildings and rapids favored by nature lovers

Partakoski rapids and marina

Partakoski is a clean and clear water area between Lake Saimaa and Lake Kuolimo, close to the Kärnäkoski fortress area.

Partakoski rapids may not freeze even in winter, and different birds can be spotted in the area. The area is a popular spot for photographers.

There is also a Prince’s House built by Prince A. Barjatinsky in the area, as well as a Partaranta village shop, a restaurant and a marina with services in the summer.

The actual area is just a short distance from the village shop, along the way north. You should preferably leave your car at the Partaranta store.
