Seinäjoki is the idyllic centre of the rural South Ostrobothnia region. The young city of 65 000 inhabitants, which became a city in 1960, has room to stay, live, study, work and do leisure activities. Come and explore Seinäjoki with a local guide and experience the true entrepreneurial spirit of the north and the spirit of making a growing city work.
During the Seinäjoki tour you can see both Alvar Aalto’s and more modern architecture from the bus, including JKMM and Uki architects. In the river landscape you can see Seinäjoki’s study and business centre Frami and the Seinäjoki Areena, the venue for many events. The city districts built on the sites of former hospitals and their new functions in historic buildings are stunning ensembles. Seinäjoki’s history can be enjoyed in the surroundings of Törnävä Manor, for example. For nature and sport, visit the artificial lake area of Kyrkösjärvi and the sports and outdoor activities around Jouppilanvuori. In addition, you will see the areas where the Tango Market, Provinssi and Vauhtiajot, which are the major national summer events, are held every year.
