Very idyllic iron works built in 1698, many sights and activities
Jul 2020
Ruotsinpyhtään ruukki (also known as Strömfors bruk or Strömfors Iron Works) is a small but very idyllic old iron works village. It is situated in Ruotsinpyhtää (Strömfors), Loviisa. The iron works was founded in 1698.

There is something for everybody in the iron works village: beautiful old buildings, two free museums, art galleries, cafeterias, restaurants, handicraft shops, other boutiques, the church of Ruotsinpyhtää (built in 1770), a sauna, massages, music therapy, a small swimming beach, a playground, Escape Room Strömfors, Kukuljärvi hiking trail, accommodation (Strömfors Bed & Bistro, also special honeymoon and pampering packages including manor accommodation, private sauna bathing, a candlelit dinner and professional photos) and many activities, e.g. canoeing, SUP boarding, forging experiments and indoor karting (kart racing).

Fiskars Iron Works in Raasepori is bigger and more famous than Strömfors Iron Works. However, I love Strömfors Iron Works even more. This iron works isn't too crowded. We had one of our best summer days here!

Beautiful place and a nice walk
Jul 2018 • Couples
Kukul-lake has a nice 8 km walk where you see the summer Finland at its best. It takes you near lake and in the woods, you can pick blueberries whila you climb the rocks and sweat-remember there are mosquitos in finnish forests. After the walk you can go to eat some Carelian stew and fish et cetera at Strömfors ruukki and walk around the area just to feel the atmosphere. Perfect place for a daytrip.

Beautiful surroundings but not much more
Jul 2018 • Couples
Very beautiful and picturesque little village with history. Nice old houses in good condition. BUT the shops are full of peculior things and the art and exhibition was no big experience. The map of the area was disorganized and confusing. The museums were very traditional. We were disappointed.

A really interesting place
Jul 2012 • Friends
The ironworks opened in the 17th century and eventually gave their name to the whole municipality in Swedish - Strömfors. The Finnish name remained Ruotsinpyhtää (Swedish Pyhtää). The wheels were driven by the westernmost branch of the Kymi river.

Nowadays, the Upper Forge has been restored and there are forging demonstrations on occasion. There is a museum in one of the other buildings showing how the iron was forged. There's a cafe too and some craft workshops of artisans making some incredibly interesting objects. Accommodation is available nearby.
