Culture

Organise a meeting or a party at the idyllic ironworks.

Noormarkku Ironworks was founded in 1806. The Ahlström family gained ownership of the ironworks in 1870, after which the prime time of the ironworks began. For example, houses for three generations were built in the area: Isotalo, Havulinna and the world renowned Villa Mairea, designed by architect Alvar Aalto. Today, the exceptionally large ironworks area is, both architecturally and cultural historically, a valuable entity. Nowadays there are comfortable accommodation options in the area in the form of recently renovated buildings or you can hold meetings, have parties or receptions in stylish premises. A guided tour at the Ahlström Voyage exhibition or Villa Mairea makes a meeting or a celebration something you will never forget. More information www.vierastoiminta.a-ahlstrom.fi

Renovation Centre Toivo’s advice to people renovating old houses is to work in a manner that will retain the old and good structure and the basic characteristics of the houses. At the south side of Korsman’s House, there is a dwelling with two bedrooms and a kitchen, which has been decorated to portray the home of a fictional family with two children, the Korsmans, in 1951. You may touch every item when visiting Korsman House. Korsman House has been designed as atmospheric time travel to peek at a Pori childhood home of modern-day children’s grandparents.

Come to the Bothnian Sea National Park and familiarise yourself with the unique and constantly changing insular nature, caused by land uplift. If you are taking a trip for a day or two, it is recommended to depart from any harbour on the coast and head for the lovely lighthouse islands or the rugged outer archipelago. The landscape can also be enjoyed by canoeing on the more sheltered areas of the archipelago. The avifauna of the area is also plentiful. The national park consists of areas that differ in terms of geography: The Oura, Gummandoora ja Pooskeri archipelagos, Preiviikinlahti and the Luvia, Rauma, Uusikaupunki and Seksmiilari archipelagos.
