    Through out the center of town, there's a walking and shopping area called Promenade Janne. The name refers to the national composer of Finland, Jean Sibelius. Anyway, there are many shops here and you can buy anything from food to clothes & shoes to household appliances. There's also a mall at the lake end of this promenade.
