    Monument

    by Nobbe Updated Jan 21, 2005

    Favorite thing: This cannon can be found beside the road to the harbour of Röyttä. It's the Lapland War Artillery Monument (1944-1945 ). The Lapland War began properly in Tornio with the landing on the 1st October 1944. Initially, the fighting was hampered by the lack of artillery. It was not until the 6th October when artillery was obtained, and the Finns were able to defeat the German troops.

    Tornio River

    by Nobbe Written Nov 6, 2004

    Favorite thing: The Tornio River is the longest free-flowing major river in Northern Europe that gains its might from faraway northern arctic hills. The nature of the river changes with each season, giving no forewarning of its surprises.
