Coastal town charm

Tammisaari is an urban area in southern Finland’s Uusimaa region that received its royal charter in 1546. In 2009, it merged with two other municipalities into the town of Raasepori.

Tammisaari was once a village that earned its living through fishing and crafts, and was known as a safe haven for seafarers. Today, it remains popular among boaters, especially during the summer season, and over 80 percent of the population are Swedish speakers.

While many of the buildings in Old Tammisaari have been rebuilt over the years, care has been taken to preserve the winding alleys and lanes. Street names such as Hatuntekijänkatu (Hatter’s Lane) and Nahkurinkatu (Tanner’s Lane) offer a delightful glimpse into a bygone era.
