    Kaupunginhotelli: Kaupunginhotelli

    by Nobbe Written Jan 14, 2005

    Not much of a nightlife in Tornio, but the best place I found was Kaupunginhotelli. (There might be more out there but I didn't found them!). At least you can drink the finnish beer Lapin Kulta there. =)

    Dress Code: Come as you are.
