Piipun Piha - patio with chimney - Cya On The Road

Tourist complex “Piipun Piha” is located in Sortavala, away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets, on the coast of Ladoga Lake. The building, the complex is situated in, has a rich history. In 1875 a merchant from Sortavala, Daniel Tiajnen organized a steam-driven sawmill. This place was named Kiviniemi Saha (a sawmill on stone cape). The establisher did not even have an idea that in 116 years a comfortable hotel named “Piipun Piha”, what in Finnish translation means “Patio with chimney”, would be constructed based on this building.
