Alexander III, emperor of Russia and Grand Duke of Finland, and his Danish born consort Dagmar, in Russia known under the name Marie Feodorovna, had heard about the good salmon fishing at Langinkoski.

In the summer of 1880 they arrived at Langinkoski to watch the salmon fishing. They also took a liking to the beautiful river scenery and promised to return.Some yers later they did return to Langinkoski. They said that they would like to have a little fishing hut on the banks of the river.

The senate of the Grand Duchy of Finland took measures to have a villa built for the sovereign and his family on the very banks of the Langinkoski rapids.
