It is easy to be happy in Vaasa

Finland is full of modest cities, but Vaasa isn’t one of them. We believe that a good life comes from having the courage to be proud of what you are without being ashamed to show it. ​

Life is meant to be easy

When others say maybe, we say yes. When others remain unsure, we act. When others stay put, we move ahead. If you want an easier fun-filled life, then make Vaasa your home.

THE SEA is part of our everyday life and gives us strength. Our close proximity to Finland’s only UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, the Kvarken Archipelago, offers us a perspective stretching far beyond the country’s borders.



Working towards making the seemingly impossible achievable requires a lot of PASSION, courage and determination, while
standing firmly on the ground. We have the attitude and framework to achieve a happy life according to our personal needs.

We are working towards an even better Vaasa in a heartfelt way.
