Sights to see

Museum brigde

A wooden grid bridge, completed in the autumn of 1893, was burned in April 1918. A new bridge was built the following summer by Red prisoners. It was completed in 106 days and it was ready for use in October 1919. It was declared as a museum bridge in 1982. Still in use for traffic, the bridge is one of the most beautiful landmarks in Kokemäki.
