The twin-city HaparandaTornio endows a natural combination of two cultures for both of the cities of Tornio and Haparanda as you hardly notice the border between Sweden and Finland on daily basis.

The Victoria Plaza right on the border is uniquely special in the area, and perhaps even in the whole world: the Plaza was named after Princess Victoria of Sweden at the inauguration ceremony she performed in 2011. The spectacular Rajakaari on the border is designed by children in the region, the forms, and coloring of the routes depicting the connection between the two cities.

The Shopping Centre Rajalla - På Gränsen, with a variety of boutiques and affairs, as well as the world-renowned Ikea right at the border, offer both traditional as well as design products and, of course, the latest fashion both in clothing, shoes, accessories as well as home furnishings.
