Finland’s Easternmost village Möhkö and the Petkeljärvi National Park are a unique destination in North Karelia, in the municipality of Ilomantsi. At Möhkö, you’re genuinely in the East, right next door to Russia. Right by the Koitajoki river, the village of Möhkö was formed in the 1800s around one of the largest limonite ironworks in Finland.
