Rovaniemi Church is a beautiful church built in the 1950's. It's not that old, since most of Rovaniemi's buildings were burnt to the ground in the second world war, but still it is impressive in its own way.

Consejos sobre la ciudad

Costumbres y cultura
Do not walk on the river ice! It's exciting but deadly.
Every year some people fall through the ice and it can be very dangerious. Watch the river from the bank but do not go onto ice. The ice where you can walk is usually somehow marked so if uncertain, don't go to the ice.
Costumbres y cultura
Tipping is not necessary.
The waiters are paid fairly in Finland. Of course if you feel like you want to tip waiters, go for it! They'll appreciate it.
Formas de ahorrar
The tap water is completely safe to drink.
We have one of the cleanest tap waters in the world so drink ahead! No need to buy bottled water, tap water is more likely cleaner any way.
Cómo moverse
You can walk basically everywhere in the city.
Only the airport, Santa Claus village and some activities are further away.
Costumbres y cultura
Cash isn't that necessary, debit/credit works everywhere
You probably don't need to carry any cash with you (at least not that much) since most shops and restaurants accept cards. I haven't carried cash with me in years.
Costumbres y cultura
Finnish alcohol policy
Fancy a bottle of wine or something stronger? You have to buy them in government-owned alcohol shops called Alko. Normal stores can sell alcohol products such as beer or cider as long as it is not above 5.5 percentage of alcohol. So that means wines and liquor are sold in those Alko shops. Alko's are not open on national holidays or sundays, so plan ahead if you want to buy something to take home!
