Experience a culture-filled holiday in Vaasa

The magnificent archipelago and a variety of cultural offerings make Vaasa the pearl of the west coast and a great destination for families.

Located on the Gulf of Bothnia, Vaasa has a stunning marine environment and is also an important cultural centre. On your holiday in Vaasa, you can enjoy the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art and have fun in spa favourite Tropiclandia. For a more leisurely pace, visit Replot island, part of the Kvarken archipelago and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For a city break, start with the Ostrobothnia Museum and the Terranova-Kvarken Nature Centre. The museum exhibits local culture and art, with exhibitions including the Hedman floor, which reproduces a nineteenth-century town house, and the Vaasa 400 local history exhibition. The nature centre introduces visitors to the marine environment of the archipelago. The Museum of Old Vaasa takes you into middle-class housing from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Vaasa has many interesting art galleries. Located in a former customs warehouse, Kuntsi offers varied exhibitions of modern art. The Tikanoja Art Museum features the work of both Finnish and foreign artists. The Brage Open-Air Museum concentrates on the Swedish culture of Ostrobothnia.

There are many interesting things to see and do for the whole family. One of the most popular places is the combined water park and spa, Tropiclandia, located on the island of Vaskiluoto. For something out of the ordinary, visit Meteoria, a visitor centre at Söderfjärden located in a meteorite crater more than 500 million years old. You might also care to take a guided tour of Strömsö villa, which dates back to the 1860s.

You can combine an inexpensive trip to Vaasa with exploring the Finnish west coast on a nature excursion to the Kvarken archipelago. The Replot Bridge, the longest in Finland, provides speedy access to the relaxed atmosphere and marine environment of the archipelago. A boat trip will take you to the Valassaaret or Mikkelinsaaret islands in the outer archipelago.

Vaasa is easily accessible by train, bus and domestic plane from Helsinki. As well as taking short island cruises, you can visit Sweden from Vaasa, with Wasaline ships reaching Umeå in a few hours.
