  • When I was going to Kotka for the first time, I was going here to Sapokka. I knew that this is the most famous park of Kotka with the largest artificial waterfall in Finland, the purpose of which is not only decorative, but also ecological: to saturate seawater with oxygen. Reality has exceeded all expectations! I wanted to learn more about the park, its creator and name it here. Having already returned home, I, as they say, "deepened into the question" and found out to whom Kotka owes its fabulous beauty. Its head gardener - Heikki Laxonen - became known for its paradise gardens not only for the whole of Finland, but for the whole of Europe. In Sapokka you can spend at least a whole day: there is a place to sit down to relax, where to hide from the rain, there are gazebos where you can eat. And, mind you, all this time you've been FREE AIR. Come to Sapocca to get aesthetic pleasure, breathe full breasts and gain health!

  • My favorite time to visit Sapocca is the end of May, the beginning of June, when the lilac blooms and the flowering of rhododendrons and magnolia begins.
