THE BEAR THAT NEVER SLEEPS – EVEN IN WINTER!
The floor-to-ceiling renovated, traditional Kiteen Karhu, or Kitee's Bear, is the pride of Karelia and Kitee. Its specialities include the trendy pontikka or Finnish moonshine which has found its way from forest hideaways to our hardwood bar. The legendary Karhu revives the modern hunting tradition in a worldly manner: the customers are entertained not only with food and drinks, but also with theme clubs, karaoke, pop and rock gigs and stand-up evenings.

The restaurant's design portrays nature and mystical Karelia with the bear, Finland's national animal, as its sacred, respected king.
