The pier at the Inner Harbor

The seaside promenade at the University of Vaasa, Centaur Statue

If you have not yet experienced the wonder of the seaside next to the University of Vaasa, it’s time now. In this place, the sun’s rays go down in the direction of the magnificent centaur statue and reveal its shimmering surface. It pays to bring a picnic blanket and lunch bag that you can enjoy by the seaside of the campus area.

The obervation tower Saltkaret in Svedjehamn

Exercise stairs at Gerbynmäki

See conifer trees colored by the sun’s rays from the top of a hill! Go up the illuminated stairs to  highest point of Gerbynmäki, from there you can even see the Replot Bridge. This gem is not necessarily the first thing one will think of, but it is definitely one of the best places to enjoy the sunset.

An island by an island! On Island Mansikkasaari you can admire the sun from the boat or the beach.
