Kajaani: famous for the ruins of Kajaani Castle which was built in 1604 on an island in the middle of Kajaaninjoki River, the last medieval styled fortification in Scandinavia. Unlike those in central and southern Europe, Kajaani Castle was neither royal nor aristocratic, but served instead as a military site whose purpose was to protect Northern Ostrobothnia from the Russians, and maintain order on the inland waterways in that region.     photo © Kaupungin matkailutoimisto
