The biggest event of the early summer is the Kultaranta discussions hosted by President Niinistö on 12–13. June.
The city of Naantali will host a welcome reception for the presidential couple at the marina at Killa Pier on Sunday evening, June 5, at 6.30 pm. At the same time, President Niinistö and Mrs. Haukio will also meet the audience.

The beach is awaiting renovation
During the summer, the public can visit Kultaranta Park and the sculpture exhibition on Fridays from 6 pm to 8 pm. In addition, Naantali Tourism organizes guided tours of the parking area.
Kultaranta, located on the island of Luonnonmaa in Naantali, has been the summer official residence of the President of the Republic of Finland since 1922. The main building of Kultaranta, a granite castle completed in 1916, was built by Alfred Kordelin, an agricultural consultant, and designed by architect Lars Sonck.
The Golden Beach villa has an extensive park area and a useful garden with flowers and vegetables. The main building and park of Kultaranta will be renovated by 2025, which is why they will be out of use from 2023–to 24. More information about the renovation can be found on the President's Office website(switch to another service).
