Verla Mill Museum
UNESCO World Heritage site that captures an interesting phase of development in Finland’s industrial history.
Verla is a unique UNESCO World Heritage site that brings the turn of the 20th century to life. Culture, history, architecture, activities and nature come together at this multifaceted site.
The Verla Groundwood and Board Mill is a unique, intact industrial complex dating from the early years of the Finnish wood processing industry. The whole is complemented by the workers´ housing and numerous other buildings in the area. All the machines and ﬁxtures have been left intact in this authentic museum. The site was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.
The Verla World Heritage site is located in the village of Verla, a 32-kilometre drive from the centre of Kouvola. You can reach Verla by car or taxi from Kouvola train station. In the summer, a bus runs from Kouvola to Verla. At Verla, you can stay in the mill village workers’ cottages in the middle of the World Heritage site. Repovesi National Park and Kouvola’s other cultural attractions are just a short drive away
