Rustic Lapland restaurant at the heart of Rovaniemi. Their Rovaniemi Market starters and Reindeer Prepared in Two Ways main course are our all-time favorites. It is rather small so we recommend booking a table in advance.

Romantic boutique restaurant with Arctic menus in the higher price range. Pre-booking recommended. Only 400 m walk away from the apartment. We also highly recommend their highly appraised breakfast.

Café & Bar Koti (koti is Finnish word for home) offers great coffee and pastries in an easygoing atmosphere. Breakfast is also served daily and lunch during the weekdays. During the nights the space turns into a bar. The rather bohemian atmosphere is quite contradictory to the history of the building as it used to be a bank. Café Koti Open M O N - T H U 0 7 – 2 1 F R I - S A T 0 7 – 2 3 ( 0 2 ) S U N 0 7 – 2 1

Arts & Culture
If you are interested in Scandinavian architecture, the Rovaniemi City Library is a must-see. The beautiful building, designed by architect Alvar Aalto, was completed in 1965. Aalto (1898-1976) enjoyed an exceptionally rich and varied career as an architect and designer, both at home in Finland and abroad. The City Library is one of the three buildings in the Rovaniemi Administrative and Cultural Centre, all of which were designed by Aalto. The other two buildings are the Town Hall and the Lappia House (theater, concert hall and event centre). Aalto has also designed the original Rovaniemi town plan. Opening hours: Mon - Thu 9.00 am - 8.00 pm Fri 9.00 am - 6.00 pm Sat 11.00 am - 4.00 pm

Sightseeing
The Evangelican Lutheran Church of Rovaniemi was built after the second World War to the same location where the previous, demolished church was located. Pay attention to the minimalist, plain interior that let's the dramatic fresco, designed by Lennart Segerstråle to really stand out. The church yard with its soldier's grave is one of the most beautiful places in Rovaniemi.
