Town in 🇫🇮 Finland with a population of around 11 thousand people.

Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous, Swedish-speaking province of Finland. It’s also the only city in the world built on an archipelago. The picturesque town is spread out over several small islands connected by bridges, and it’s a great place to wander, explore and enjoy the fresh, Nordic air. Highlights include the ornate wooden houses, the lively harbour and the striking medieval church. Åland is a haven for cyclists, and there are plenty of trails and lanes to explore. Be sure to sample some of the local specialities, such as smoked fish and home-baked bread.

What people say about Mariehamn

To be honest, it has been a bunch of years since I was in Mariehamn, but I remember it as a friendly and pretty place. Great for a stop on the way between Sweden and Finland when traveling by one of the large cruise ships. It feels a little strange to be in "Finland" and yet everyone speaks Swedish, but with an accent. I would like to go back and explore more of the surrounding islands, especially since I heard that they have a lot of options for playing disc golf nowadays.
