3 The appeal of the unique Ukonniemi and its surroundings The tourist attractions in the area of Ukonniemi and its immediate surroundings already deliver a plentiful flow of customers. The popular Imatra Spa and new Holiday Club Saimaa spa in the vicinity attract tourists all year round. Excellent environment for entrepreneurship Recent years have seen a remarkable flow of investment capital into service development in Imatra. Major examples include the construction of a business park in the centre of town. A significant number of service outlets continues to spring up around the main South Karelia road route, especially as a result of the now competed improvements to Highway 6. A new Ikea store plus the surrounding Ikano Shopping Center only 20 minutes drive from Ukonniemi will open in Profitable entrepreneurship in the vicinity of growing centres of activity Ukonniemi s neighbouring areas are strongly growing centres of trade and services. The proximity of large, wealthy Russia underpins excellent opportunities for growth. Thanks to our Russian tourists, sales statistics make Imatra, Lappeenranta and Helsinki Finland s top three locations for tax free shopping. The region s commercial potential is well recognized in South Karelia so significant investments are being made in education regarding languages and the trade and services sectors. Highly competent and professional staff are on tap. A long tradition of tourism Popular Imatran Valtionhotelli and Day Spa The Imatra region has a distinguished history as a tourism destination and remains one of the fastest growing and finest in Finland. The Imatrankoski rapids were the first and for a long time Finland s most popular tourist attraction. Nowadays visitors are also drawn by the commercial services on the pedestrian streets in the centre of Imatra itself, the unique Castle hotel, Imatra Spa and several festivals and sports events arranged in the town. The neighbouring city of Lappeenranta also brings a full flow of tourists into the area. The Rauha resort with the new Holiday Club Saimaa spa hotel is connected to Ukonniemi by a golf course, walking trails and in the wintertime ice skating trails. Lappeenranta s international airport offers regular flights to several destinations in Europe. The pedestrian streets and a concentration of trade outlets generate tourist appeal. Tax free sales have been growing at a rate of more than 100% over the past two years. Robust and continuously strengthening tax free sales figures are indicative of Imatra s growing popularity as a tourism destination. Imatra Big Band Festival and a huge variety of other events are attracting tourists to the Imatra region. The powerful river Vuoksi in full spate at the Imatrankoski rapids.

4 Importing prosperity Tourism in South Karelia and indeed Finland as a whole has been growing at a remarkable pace, generating positive economic impacts alongside the rising rate of tourist arrivals. The engine of growth for Imatra in particular is foreign tourists primarily from Russia. A signifi cant share of the trips made to Finland by Russian tourists are shopping expeditions, and the statistics signpost the demand for growth in a variety of services. The new spa in Rauha immediately increased overnight stays by Russian tourists in the area. The market is supply-side driven with tourists buying the services that are available.
