About Vaasa

Tips from Mira


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).


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

Waterpark Tropiclandia & Amusement Park Wasalandia

To all who travel whit 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 Teraanova, 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.


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