The town centre is built in expanding circles around the city hall. Try taking one of the circle streets and get a different glimpse of the central square - which actually isn't a square - in every crossing.

The town is surrounded by a star-shaped fortification nowadays giving great frames for concerts and other events.

Located on the South Coast, 150 km East from Helsinki. Don't miss the pictoresque town of Porvoo on the way!
