Finland - West Coast (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the West Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guidebook.

Stretching for 500km along the sandy shoreline, Finland’s west coast harbours a cache of his-toric old wooden towns such as Uusikaupunki, Kristinestad and Unesco-listed Rauma, founded at the height of the Swedish empire. But the coastline itself is the biggest attraction.

  • wandering the colourful Unesco World Heritage–listed wooden Old Town of Rauma
  • maps
  • pondering outlandish retro-futuristic inventions at Uusikaupunki’s humorous Bonk Muse-um
  • transport
  • cruising the rapidly rising islands of the scattered Kvarken Archipelago
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Uusikaupunki, Rauma & around, Pori, Kristinestad, Närpes & around, Seinäjoki, Vaasa, Jakobstad, Fäboda, Kokkola, and Kalajoki & Hiek-kasärkät.
