Raahe is a peculiarly attractive seaside town in the region of Northern Ostrobothnia. Raahe’s history is deeply rooted in the sailing ship era, and the culture of storytelling remains strong. We have a highly praised archipelago and a great location by the sea.
Raahe is home to 25,000 residents. Raahe is well known for its steel and metal industry. The agricultural and forestry sectors are important as well. A child-friendly town, Raahe has invested in a comprehensive network of schools and day-care centres. Our precious metal is steel and our treasure is our people.
