Welcome to Nokia
Believe it or not: there is a town named Nokia in Finland! The very roots of the famous Nokia Corporation lie on the Nokia River where the paper mill of Mr. Idestam started almost 140 years ago. He gave the company the name "Nokia" which was name of a manor nearby.
In 140 years the paper mill village has grown to a town of 32 000 inhabitants. Nokia is an industrial town: main branches are rubber (tires and footwear), paper, textile, flooring and metal. Both the location close to the regional city of Tampere and excellent road and air connections have given fine possibilities to the growth.
Not only jobs but the surrounding nature with lakes, rivers and country side attract inhabitants to Nokia. For most people coming to town, tourism means enjoying the variety of quality outdoor activities on offer. For boaters, Nokia is the centre of magnificent landscapes and routes. Cruises will take you across lake Pyhäjärvi to city of Tampere, to the historical town of Hämeenlinna or along Lake Kulovesi to the small town of Vammala.
Nokia is a lively place all year round. You can enjoy the Eden Spa Hotel´s relaxing tropical leisure or sample a traditional Finnish sauna or Jacuzzi round the year. The Finnish light music event Tapsan Tahdit alone attracts thousands of people to Nokia every summer.
The city is also famous for its many sports events. The 18+9 -hole Nokia River Golf course invites you to wander through the beautiful Taivalkunta scenery. The skiing tracks, indoor ice-rink, sports hall, swimming pool, and stables all add variety to the wide range of activities available.
