Parties and entertainment since the Tsarist era

Wanha Kasino was completed in 1896 as the centre of entertainment and social life for spa guests on the Happy Islands. Aino Ackté, the prima donna of the opera world, knew her worth and appreciated quality. You are now in her favourite haunt. Ackté was a familiar sight at Kasino’s parties over the
years. It is incredible that we still have the joy of seeing this beautiful building today. Wanha Kasino invites you to celebrate life with its history of entertainment,  artfully prepared dishes, and dedicated service staff –cheers!

Eastern Finland holds a treasure – the hidden gem – the enchanting Lake Saimaa with its pure nature. Saimaa engages all senses with its fresh wilderness, captivating silence, clean water, endless forests and the welcoming Eastern Finnish culture. For us, gastronomy is an everyday luxury as our forests and lakes serve us the purest food in the world.
