Kultaranta Garden

The garden attraction of Naantali

Kultaranta and its garden are one of the most visited sights in Naantali. The garden of Kultaranta is the Finnish version of Versailles park and is a must-see point of interest in Naantali during summertime. It is possible to visit the garden on a guided tour during summertime.

From a gorgeous private villa to the summer residence of Finland’s president

Kultaranta Manor House was built one year before Finland declared independence in 1916. It was a summer villa for Merchant Alfred Kordelin and Lars Sonck was the architect. Today, this impressive granite manor house, located by Naantalinlahti Bay, is undoubtedly Finland’s best known summer residence.

Kultaranta has been the summer residence of Finnish presidents since 1922; thus, Naantali is referred to as the summer capital of Finland. Visitors to Kultaranta have the opportunity to admire the beautiful garden.

Garden is closed on Mondays and during wintertimes.
