Close to the beaches in Fäboda you'll find the arctic museum Nanoq. Founded by Pentti Kronqvist, himself an arctic traveller. This is a unique museum showing arctic cultures and ways of living from the 18th century uptil now. If you visit Jakobstad, I strongly suggest you go here!!

Mustakari, On the seaside... What more romantic nor ambient can you find?
Very popular place to have your wedding reception. It is situated on an island in a part of town called Halkokari, also very close to where my grandparents used to live... :)
You´ll have to take a boat to get there. It is a good way to see the archipelago too.
Unfortunately, since I don´t live there anymore, I don´t know is there any public transportation.. We always went there on my aunts boat.
The pic is taken from the plane, the island is about where the sun sets in the horizon :)
Favorite thing: Go out to the sea! You can walk a couple of kilometres to the harbour area, but try to go out to Fäboda. Wonderful cliffs, clean (cold) water and sandy beaches. Suitable for a day's outing in whatever the weather!
Favorite thing: Have a stroll in the lovely 'schoolgarden'! The 'schoolgarden' is a fantastic botanical garden in the heart if the town. It's situated next to the high school (which also is a stunning building), hence the name.
Jakobstad is small enough to just walk around.
By the town market square you'll see the city hall which was built in 1731 (the first one was burned down by the russians in 1714).
