Kouvola is a town and municipality in south-eastern Finland. It is located 134 kilometres (83 mi) northeast of the capital, Helsinki.
The city has a population of 86,943 (31 January 2014) and covers an area of 2,883.30 square kilometres (1,113.25 sq mi) of which 325.06 km2(125.51 sq mi) is water. The population density is 33.99 inhabitants per square kilometre (88.0 /sq mi).
Kouvola's central location within Finland's borders and as a border post between the European Union and Russian Federation makes it a quite lively town.] The town originally grew up around the junction of the north-south and east-west rail tracks. It was also a major road transport junction.
The card sent to me by Reino shows the Kouvola Railway Station as it was in 1902.
