    The atmosphere is great. The restaurant is located in an old Neristan house. There's not so many chances to get into these old houses because people live there, so this a good chance to see inside. Especially I like the Cigar Room upstairs. The food is also good.

    Pedrina's is a very cosy texmex style rastaurant/bar. They serv burritos, burgers, and even some dishes that are more finnish. Big plates!

    If you visit Kokkola during winter, a good way to meet local people and try traditional finnish winter activities is to come to "Roskaruka". It's a small hill just outside the town centre, although it's the biggest "mountain" you can find for miles!

    Roskaruka used to be a real skiing centre but that was years ago. Nowadays people still go there to ski and children to ride down the hill, and on sunny winter days it might be really crowded! It's fun and absolutely free! If you climb up to the top you have a great view(see "at night" pic on homepage) over Kokkola! And you some exersice too! :D

    Roskaruka is lighted up until 9-10pm.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip is quite useless because you are not allowed to see this, but there's never too much trivia, right? There is five so called all-weather-terminals in Europe. It means huge buildings where ships can sail in to load cargo. The AWT terminal in Kokkola harbour is the biggest in Europe.

    "Kokkolan uimahalli" (=the swimming hall of kokkola) is much more than just a venue for swimming. There are 5 different pools and more under construction (open in Summer '05). You can bowl, play tennis, work out, get a massage...There's also a cafe and a hairdresser. And the "ice stadium" is right next door if you want to check out a game with the local icehockey team "Hermes".
