    The imperial fishing hut at Langinkoski is a summer residence built for emperor Alexander III of Russia in the late 1880s. Russian Tsesarevich Alexander Alexandrovich visited the Langinkoski salmon fishing site in summer 1880. The naturally beautiful rapids and impressive haul made an impression on the future emperor. In 1887, when he had already been crowned emperor, Alexander III of Russia came back to see salmon fishing at Langinkoski together with empress Maria Feodorovna, known before her marriage as Princess Dagmar of Denmark. After the visit, the autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland received the order: An imperial fishing hut was to be built at Langinkoski, and the fishing rights were to be moved from the Grand Duchy to the emperor.
