Рованиеми - описание

Rovaniemi - the capital of Lapland, and the residence of Santa Claus. City by the Arctic Circle is a popular place for winter recreation. 

The Gold Rush attracted many adventurers in holodnyyRovaniemi in 18th century. Not surprisingly, this caused the economic growth of the city and made it the capital of Lapland. Rovaniemi is also a thriving university town, and offers several interesting museums to visit in the vicinity of the city and some great options for outdoor activities. 

Due to the fact that the city was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War and then completely rebuilt, you can see here only modern building. 

Rovaniemi is also an excellent starting point for trips to the zoo Ranua containing arctic fauna, themed entertainment center in the Santa Park in the Village of Santa Claus, the world's only open to visitors Amethyst Mine near Luosto and fabulous snow castle in Kemi. 

If you're lucky, you can witness the amazing phenomenon called the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. This phenomenon can be seen dark night in clear weather. Typically, the Northern Lights in Lapland can be observed from September to March.
