I have a long history with Kitee. Because my mother is from there nearby, we spend most of our summers there as a child.
We rented cottages at the surrounding area of Kitee(Tohmajärvi, Suoparsaari, Haarajärvi,...) for years.
The nature there is astonishing at summertime; its hot, lot of forests and plenty of lakes to cool down.
The city of Kitee is kinda small and i just cant imagine what to do there as an adult.
There are few bars and Pesäpallo(finnish version of baseball) is most common sport there.
Some figures about the city of Kitee:
-a county of Kitee was founded 1631, and the city of Kitee 1992(!!??)
- Pros:Nature is astonishing
- Cons:What to do there?
- In a nutshell:Nice place for spending few days in cottage by the lake.
If you are crazy enough, why dont try ski jumping? Well, anything goes if playing "Jackass"... more travel advice
