Pori
Since Finland gained her independence in 1917, Pori has been an important, fast-growing city of heavy industry and ports. Rosenlew, Outokumpu, Rauma-Repola, Kemira and other industrial plants needed plenty of fresh labour and the city grew rapidly. The new age brought new winds of culture. Within a few years, the Pori Jazz Festival grew to become a flourishing international festival, and Finnish rock often has its roots in Pori. In sport, the city won a name for itself as the home of prizewinning strongmen and its national champion ballgame teams. In the new millennium, Pori is a city of students. In Pori’s centres of education one can study technology, business and the humanities. With its six thousand students, Satakunta Polytechnic has been chosen as the national centre of excellence in its field. The Pori National Municipal Park embraces the main features of Pori: the fast-flowing Kokemäenjoki river delta, industrial and cultural history, and the living present. Good environmental management has made Pori, Yyteri and the marine area a superb place for recreational pursuits. The delta is still a paradise for bird-watching enthusiasts in Finland. As it prepares for its 450th anniversary, Pori is a city that is proud of its long history. Pori has a population of 76,000. The population of the surrounding Satakunta rural district is 241,000.
Porvoo
At a distance of about 50 km from the Helsinki metropolitan area and from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, Porvoo is an easily accessible destination: a good half an hour's drive takes you from downtown Helsinki to Porvoo, situated on the E 18 highway. Regular bus traffic between the capital and Porvoo is an easy and fast travelling option.
The Porvoo archipelago and its countryside have much to offer both to their inhabitants and to those spending their leisure there.
Alongside the old islander life, there are summerhouse residents and boaters. A part of the inhabitants of Pellinki island live off the archipelago: fishing and boat building are the source of livelihood for many. Many islanders who have gone to the mainland for work or study yearn to return to the archipelago which continues to be a popular living environment. You can find out more about old traditions at the Hörbergsgården outdoormuseum wich describes life of an islander house of Pellinki in the late 19th century. Vessels made with boat building skills dating from ancient times go out to the seas from the boatyards of Kråkö and Pellinki. The Kråkö museum of boat building is an attraction for those interested in boating. The visiting ports of the archipelago, for example, at Tirmo and Hamari, warmly welcome crews. You can also reach Pellinki by road, enjoying a ride on the only ferry in use in the Eastern Uusimaa archipelago at Tirmo. On a beautiful summer night, Tanssisaari (Dance Island) at Tolkkinen invites you to an open air dance hall of the good old times. At Pellinki, an original sport, axe throwing, has a wide following, and the competitors of the island have won several national championships in the sport.
Pudasjärvi
