The old towns in Finland are typically beautiful areas for an enjoyable stroll. Skata suburb in Jakobstad (Pietarsaari), a town on the west coast some 400 kms north of Turku, may not be ancient old but it certainly is beautiful. It is an old workers suburb that nowadays is a desired place to live in Jakobstad. In my opinion the few crooked fences and awesome details like the gossip mirrors in the windows among otherwise well kept houses and yards only added to the character.
As we continued our road trip from Jyväskylä and Keuruu to Jakobstad to mainly catch up with friends, we didn’t do a lot of sightseeing. We visited the arctic museum Nanoq briefly. It may not have been at all boring with its open air replicas of eskimo living etc. but it wasn’t a museum for tired little children.
