About Vaasa

Tips from Mira

Nature

Try for example one of our nature paths or walk to one of our beatifull parks (to old Vaasa Park you might like to take e.g. a bus).

Beaches

I recommend Gustavsborg and Hietasaari, both are nearby our City Campus and your hotel.

Waterpark Tropiclandia & Amusement Park Wasalandia

To all who travel with kids or enjoy playfull day at park.

Maritime Atractions

Notice that we will arrange social program both Sat 7.7. and Sun 8.7. By taking part to those, you will see Terranova, get a cruise to Janne's Saloon, visit at Kvarken and see also the Bridge of Raippaluoto and stop at Berny's etc.

Culture & Sights

Notice at least Kuntsi and Tikanoja Art Galleries, most sights you can see just by walking around City (like our beatifull Ciry Hall). If it happens to rain (not typical in July at Vaasa), we also have modern cinema and several museums.

Sports & Leisure

Just for fun: try cinemabowling or minigolf (I recommend Botnia Minigolf nearby Wasalandia). If you wish to have more information about sports like our Gyms etc. do not hestitate to ask from me.

Shopping

I recommend to check at least these: Loftet (handcraft), Marimekko and Pentik.

Cafés, Restaurants & Pubs

I recommend small café/confectioneries around the city center, my favorite is Café de Paris. In sunny days Sky´s summer terrace (the highest floor of the Rewell Center/Sokos hotel), Strampen's terrace and Faros (ranchored estaurant boat) are nice and also popular. There is also some terraces in the market square. Remember to taste Finnish ice-creame, there is several kiosks (small stall) around market square!
