Located about half way between Helsinki and the Arctic Circle, in the Central Ostrobothnian region, Kokkola is a maritime town on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. It was founded in 1620 by the Swedish King Gustaf II Adolf as a shipping port for the tar trade, a flourishing business in the 17th century. It also became an important shipbuilding centre. As a result, Kokkola was for a time the richest town in Finland. View more
