About the Vaasa Region

The Vaasa Region has risen gradually from the sea over a period of millennia.

Today, the region offers visitors fresh winds and spellbinding scenery, modern technology, international trends and local Ostrobothnian traditions.

In the UNESCO World Heritage Site Kvarken Archipelago, it sometimes feels as though the sea and sky have blended together and you can no longer tell where one ends and the other begins.

All you can do is quietly admire nature at its best and let your soul rest.
