A nice buzzy place with chain shops and small souvenir shops, opticians and a few bars. Nothing cheap here so unless you need it, buy it when you’re home. Nice atmosphere though, we were there during a children’s Christmas parade which was sweet. Nice indoor...More

There is nothing to see or do what you cannot see or do anywhere else. There is not a nice atmosphere, but not a bad too. Just a few shoppingmalls, cafés etc. Rovanimie is ok because of the artic centre.

Plenty of tourist town restaurants (hamburgers, pizzas, reindeer, salmon), a few pubs, an internal shopping mall with normal clothes outlets, nothing particularly special. All the property is built after the 1950s, as the town was destroyed by fire when the German troops left in 1944.

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.
