The most beautiful cities in Finland

Finland is a close country to Russia and a very popular destination for many tourists from all over the world. Fishing on Finnish lakes, shopping, fortresses and old churches - all this awaits tourists planning to visit one of the cities of this country. Finland has many beautiful cities, and many of them are quite remote from the well-known tourist centers and you will have to get to them by land transport, but it's worth it.


The capital of Finland and the country's excursion treasure. The city is located on the coast of the bay, has beautiful landscapes and a unique «northern» architecture. The proximity to the northern capital of Russia makes this city very popular among Russian tourists. Senaatintori Square, Sibelius Monument, Church on a Rock, Helsinki Museum - these are just a few of the must-see places in this city..


If you want to travel back in time, then the city of Rauma is the perfect place. Here you will not find a lot of tourists, because the city is quite remote from the capital of the country, and you can only get to it by land transport. But in return you will get a cozy and beautiful city, in the center of which you cannot hear the noise of cars. Tourists can stroll along the beautiful narrow streets, admire the old wooden houses, as well as visit the Maritime Museum, the City Museum and the Marel Museum..


The capital of Lapland is located at the Arctic Circle. Rovaniemi is the most popular winter city in Finland and is considered the birthplace of Santa Claus. The year in this town is divided into two large seasons - the polar night season and the polar day season. Visit Lapland Forest Museum, Auttinkengäs Waterfall and overnight in a hotel made entirely of ice.


Arriving in Porvoo, you find yourself in a medieval fairy tale. The main attraction of the city is the Cathedral. Walking along the narrow streets, you can get to the market square or to the pier near the river. In addition, the city has a wonderful story about the romance of Alexander I and the Finnish beauty Ullu Möllersvard. The Porvoo Historical Museum will help you to plunge into this time..


This city is the third largest, it is surrounded by nearly two hundred lakes. Every tourist who is in this city is simply obliged to visit its main attractions:

  • Särkänniemi Amusement Park;
  • Small palace «Pickupalatsi»;
  • Museum of the Textile Industry and Museum of Steam Machines.

This concludes this modest list of beautiful cities in Finland. But you need to understand that these are far from all the beautiful cities of the country. This also includes Pori, Turku, Kotka, etc..
