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.

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
