James Finlayson, a Scotsman, founded a cotton mill in Tampere in 1820. The weaving hall, where The Plevna Brewery Pub & Restaurant is located today, was built in 1877, and the name Plevna dates back to this period.
In the Russo-Turkish War (1877-78) there were men from the Finlayson cotton mills who fought alongside Russian troops, and since the custom of the day was to name each new Finlayson building after some significant current event, the weaving hall was named after a battle fought in the Balkan town of Plevna during this conflict. Therefore, it was more than appropriate for us to call our pub Plevna.
Plevna is also linked with another historic event: in 1882, the very first electric light bulbs in the Nordic countries brought light to the Finlayson weaving hall, only three years after Thomas Alva Edison’s invention.
