A lively town centre that invites you to shop
The town of Jakobstad is a charming old town with a renewed town centre, and together these two things form a pleasant entirety, in which one gladly would spend some free time shopping or eating. The new parking garage below the town square makes it easier to find a parking spot. The entrance to the parking garage is next to the town square, on Köpmansgatan 13.
In our compact town centre, small local specialty stores as well as nationwide chain stores lie closely together. Right next to the pedestrian street there is also a newly constructed shopping centre. Our lively and concentrated centre was recently voted as the liveliest town/city centre in Finland!
