This is Rovaniemi. It's the capital of Lapland, the northernmost province of Finland. It was practically destroyed by the Nazi army in 1944, and so was essentially rebuilt by famed Finnish architect Alvar Aalto.
Oh, and did we mention, that it happens to be Santa Claus' official earthly residence?
The town has not only Santa's office (where he opens mail, obviously) but also a Santa Park, which is open November 23 through January 11 and official post office.
Need a holiday spirit (albeit a bit early)? Join us for a little Santa fun time.
