Cultural services

Humanity and culture go hand in hand, and extensive national and international research evidence shows that cultural activities have a significant positive impact on an individual’s well-being, health and life expectancy.

In Kemijärvi, cultural services enable the well-being of local residents by providing quality leisure and study opportunities through community colleges, libraries, cultural, sports, music and youth services.

We serve not only our citizens but also tourists through events and wide opening hours. Cultural activities take place all year round, often from dawn to dusk and at weekends.
