First lady Jenny Haukio accompanied the President to the granite-built house stands in 54-hectare grounds in the lush green, according to a STT news agency report.

Niinistö and Haukio are also scheduled to inaugurate an exhibition focusing the works of sculptor Pirkko Nukari on Tuesday.

The Finnish president’s summer residence complex was introduced in 1922 after parliament voted to acquire Kultaranta, where late businessman Alfred Kordelin had a manor built for himself in 1974, after its ownership shifted to University of Turku in 1971 on Kordelin’s death.  

The complex includes a number of parks and conservatories. The president generally stays there between June and Augus
