The city of Alajärvi is a vibrant urban center in eastern South Ostrobothnia. In the everyday life of our residents, the versatile functions of trade and services and going to school meet. We are especially known for Alvar Aalto, Eero Nelimarka and baseball. We have invested heavily in the development of sports facilities in order to offer our residents even better recreational opportunities.
You can encounter waves in Alajärvi in many ways: Architect Alvar Aalto’s handprint is strongly visible in several of our public buildings, and our attractive waterways invite you to enjoy water sports.
