Welcome to Karelia, the home of joy and lively culture!
Break Sokos Hotel Bomba warmly welcomes you to the sceneries of Lake Pielinen. Always more than just a hotel, Break means a vibrant interlude from everyday life. Your choice of pastime may be a brain-training game or a long hike in the wilderness, for example. And when was the last time you indulged yourself in a massage or an abundant serving of delicious Karelian pies? You can select all this, and much more. On a work trip or holiday. We want to inspire and encourage you to grasp the moments of joy in life - ask our talkative staff for great suggestions!
The House of Bomba is the heart of the region
Jegor Bombin built the House of Bomba for his only son Dimitri in Suojärvi in 1855. The house was built entirely of large logs, and not a single nail or other metal part was used in its construction. The building process lasted one summer. Dmitri's five children decided to pull down the house in 1934 but, fortunately, a replica of it was built in Nurmes, by Lake Pielinen, in the 1970s. From the House of Bomba, you can see all of the key sights of the region: the Greek Orthodox chapel tsasouna, as well as the impressive Karelian village. The entire area features a beautiful lake scenery. Stop here for a while and let the historical surroundings empower you! This is a place where time stands still and you can forget about all haste of life.
A break to match your mood
Karelian pies and other traditional delicacies
The House of Bomba, naturally, serves Karelian specialties from a buffet and a la carte. Our skilled chefs prepare such delicacies as smoked perch, Karelian stew and rye-crusted blueberry pie, without forgetting about the famous Karelian pies. Local cuisine plays a big part in the hotel's authentic spirit. Breakfast is the best part of the day. Our breakfast service includes fresh coffee, warm bread, as well as healthy and refreshing smoothies and fruit juices - with a smile.
Chocolate masks and jacuzzis for your wellbeing at the spa
The warm waters of our spa delight visitors of all ages, all year round. Bathe outdoors under the stars on a winter night or take a refreshing dip in Lake Pielinen on a hot summer day. Relax in the sauna - and if you still feel tension after bathing, try Neurosonic, LPG or Huber, or a traditional massage. Ask our staff for more information about various treatments! Visit the beauty and hair salons to get especially beautiful for a night of Karelian fun! Beauty treatments lift your spirit, as well.
Muscles or brain?
A fit body supports a fit mind. You can also take care of your fitness during your work or holiday trip to our hotel. The spa accommodates the modern Kinesiocenter. Step in first thing in the morning or any time during the day to do mobility-supporting or cardiovascular exercises. An ATV or snowmobile safari is a great way to spend time and bond with colleagues. It clears your mind and gives you an endorphin rush. If you are looking for additional brain exercise after the workday or meeting, ask our Sales Service or the Safari House staff for entertaining group activities.
The great wilderness surrounds you
The North Karelian landscape with its winding hills and pure waters inspires all senses. You can have a reindeer or dog-sled ride, ski at your own pace or bike in the forest. Fishing on Lake Pielinen is a mind-soothing experience, and marked hiking routes are available at all seasons. Sometimes just sitting under a tree in the forest is all it takes to find peace of mind. The nature gives you strenth.
The enjoyment doesn't have to stop here
