To the northwest, on the Swedish border, you can stop in this pleasant little town of 21 00 inhabitants (2016), the gateway to Lapland and located at the mouth of the Tornionjoki River, which forms the Finnish-Swedish border. It was along this river that the racist and megalomaniac Russian politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky wanted to trace the border with Sweden in the second half of the 1990s! If the border exists on the maps, in reality Tornio and Haparanda - a Swedish city on the other side of the Tornionjoki - are twin cities operating in the same mode. The Old Church of Tornio, built in 1686, remains one of the most beautiful wooden churches in Finland.
