Vibrant since the Stone Ages
Today the flow of rapids has slowed right down due to Hietama dam, but the agriculture still thrives in the area. The rest of the rapids in the area have been dredged, except Naarakoski which still runs wild and is a very popular fishing destination.

Experience Hietama Church accross the street
Accross the street from Kartano Kievari you can visit a breath-taking church designed by
Timo Suomalainen. Timo Suomalainen and his brother have also designed Temppeliaukio Church in Helsinki, which gathers one million visitors annually.
In Hietama Church you can see Timo Suominen's masterwork up close in small and more private surroundings. The light enters the building mainly from the ceiling and the whole church is surrounded by very picturesque Finnish landscapes.
The church is not open regularly during the year, however you are always welcome to take a stroll in the beautiful park and cemetery. Hietama Church is situated just across the street from us.
If you want to visit the church, contact the church office +358 40 768 1837
