Kokkola-PietarsaariKokkola has a long history that visitors are reminded of by the old town and the Kaarlela church. Kokkola's location on the west coast guarantees various sights for visitors. The seven bridges road between Kokkola and Pietarsaari offers a scenic route by the sea. Camping, golf, water sports and other activities attract visitors in the summer. Kokkola is also a bustling trade town with several specialty stores and factory shops.
Pietarsaari (Jakobstad) is traditionally known for skilled shipbuilders, seafarers and national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg. Today Pietarsaari has a fascinating old-town feel, yet the city houses major wood processing, metal and plastic industries and - keeping with traditions - luxury yacht industries. The city's symbols are the massive clock on top of the old tobacco factory as well as a cross, an anchor and a heart - the symbols of faith, hope and charity.
