The city of Pori stands close to the west coast of Finland on the Gulf of Bothnia. The sea is about five miles away, along the River Kokemäenjoki, which is Finland’s longest river. Pori is the capital of the Satakunta region. Visitors who hire a car in Pori can explore this area’s attractions. These range from the popular four-mile-long Yyteri Beach to the strange Juselius Mausoleum at Kappara, built and decorated for the 11-year-old daughter of a wealthy businessman. The tourist island of Reposaari has a pretty village of wooden cottages while the Villa Mairea is one of the most celebrated designs of Finnish modern architect Alvar Aalto.
