Strömfors is an old Iron Mill in Ruotsinpyhtää near Loviisa. The history of the Strömfors iron mill area is closely tied to the golden age of the Swedish iron industry in 1600's, when Finland was still part of Sweden. 

Nowadays, there are artisan shops, a wooden church, companies offering guided tours and accommodation services, the Ruukinmylly restaurant and the Pajakahvila coffee bar working in the idyllic old iron mill surrounding (most businesses are only open in the summer). There is a beach on the Kymijoki river (runs through the property). Overall, Strömfors is a historical and cultural open-air attraction for the entire family.

The Ruukinmylly restaurant is regularly open between June and August and it can seat up to 60 guests, it can also be rented for a private party. The restaurant offers traditional Finnish food with Italian and French pastries. Accommodation in the heart of Strömfors is provided by the Lomatahdet company in the HolidayStars apartments.

The current name of the area was given by Anders Nohrström and Jakob Forsell who bought the area in 1744 after the Peace of Turku. The new owners established manufacture workshop, sawmill and mill. Henrik Johan af Forselles took the role of Stromfors leader in 1781. Nine years later Henrik Johan's widow Virginia af Forselles started to supervise the area. She led the area very successfully almost 60 years until her dead in 1847.

Most of the buildings seen in the area nowadays are from Virginia's era. The iron mill workshops were shut down in 1950 after 250 years of successful working and the sawmill was closed in 1953. The electric and plastic accessories factory was established in 1947 by A. Ahlström Corporation.
