Sur la route de … Kitee, FI

posted in Finlande, news, voyages |

Spending the weekend in the East part of Finland, near Kitee, I took a few pictures around the summer cottage we stayed at (it belongs to my girlfriend’s uncle). Like most summer cottages in Finland, it is lost in the nature, next to a lake, with no neighbour close by. I like this one very much for the view, the silence, and especially for the old smoke sauna !

   
   

Going there takes about 400Km by car from Helsinki, but the second half is really nice, since the road often goes along local lakes, making your trip most pleasant. Kitee is located near the Russian border, and is quite a small place. It is mostly known for being the origin town of symphonic metal band Nigthwish.
