== About == Vaasa has been an important place whilst Finland was part of Sweden and was almost made capital once. Many people are swedish speaking here and the ties to Sweden are strong in the area.

Do

  • Old Vaasa is situated about 6km south east of the todays town featuring some ruins and a most bizarr manor house redone into a church.
  • Finlands Longest Bridge can be reached when driving 10km north-west to the island Raipaluoto. Just a bit before the bridge is a lovely public beach where you can easily camp for a day or two. On the Island itself is not really much worth seeing, just countryside.
