We have boutiques, flea markets and great shops, and we would love to give you our best tips.
Kokkola is also full of culture, music and art, so come, enjoy and take part. Chamber orchestras, theatres and concerts make you feel good and enrich your life.
Once upon the time, you could see the old lighthouse island TANKAR's lights, now you can embark MS Jenny and go see the sights. The island's nature and peace will charm your mind, and the fishing village's soup will have you licking your lips.
