We expected something more but this is just a marketplace located in the center of Rovaniemi. There is an obelisque with the handprints of the members of the Lordi band but that's all.

The square is centrally located. It is an easy walk with a lot of stores, variety of shops and nearby mall. It will expose you to the city culture of the locals. A very good place to get your bearings

Right in the centre of town, so rather hard to miss. Nothing special about it except it us in fascinating Rovaniemi. Just another square and no need to search it out as you will walk through it anyway. There are often stalks, exhibitions etc there.

Its a nice place to lounge when you have nothing to do in Rovaniemi. Decorated with Christmas trees and festoons makes you feel Christmas is just around the corner,

This is a square in the city center of Rovaniemi, where we visited early March. It has nice shops and is reachable easily. We stayed in Rovaniemi only for a week and came on the square several times, especially for the coffee ... enough to do with restaurants, bars and local shops..

This square was a beautiful place during winter, the christmas trees, lights and holiday market shops were great. Plenty of restaurants, bars and shops all the way along this square. everything you need from supermarket through to department stores. The holiday pop-up market shops were lovely - plenty of nice souvenirs, furs and other much needed presents!! Follow the square... More

Enjoyed the cafes in the square, tree was still up in Feb with ice wall around it. The river was frozen close by and took some photos of the bridge. People are generally very firendly.

We were only in Rovaniemi for 4 days but this lovely little town provided us with everything we needed! There are shop...big and small...restaurants, a supermarket, an ALKO from which to buy alcohol (still expensive but a lot less than the bars and restaurants....typically Scandinavian!), bars and all else you might like to find in a small, but beautifully formed,...
