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.

  • Waterfall IMATRONOSKI should show in Imatra and of course summer! In Tsarist Russia falls was considered fashionable spectacle for the Petersburg nobility. After visiting the waterfall by Catherine II in 1772, was launched more than 10 trains from St.Petersburg in Imatra. When 18 m height falls big avalanche of water and with a roar of rock is broken-the spectacle is impressive! It is worth such a buzz that inaudible words adjacent people! Now you can see the waterfall/and music/schedule/mainly in the weekends. Finns like to come at this time. Yes, and from St. Petersburg to go long should be t to Imatra is situated close to the border. Advise!
