My mom and I went to the Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge this afternoon and as promised, I took some pictures. The place was swarming with Russian tourists and it was a challenge to get pictures with no people in them.
The Imperial Fishing Lodge belonged to Alexander III, or Alexander Alexandrovich Romanov and his wife Maria Alexandrovna.The imperial summer holiday location was completed in 1889 and it became the favorite destination of the imperial family, a place where they could relax and forget the strict court etiquette and the golden rooms of the Winter Palace in St Petersburg. The Tzar would fish and chop wood at Langinkoski while the Tzarina would cook. Proper cottage life!
The lodge is surrounded by peaceful woods the Kymi river.
The lodge has a living area, a kitchen, a study and a dressing room and the bedrooms are upstairs.
