The passenger port is located a stone’s throw from the city center next to the beautiful river Pielisjoki, and the area is very vivid especially in summer. The passenger port has been praised to be easy-to-reach area and that’s what it really is: only few venues can be reached on foot, by bike, car and boat.
The area has extensive electrical systems for the most demanding events. Regularly in the area are organised, for example, fish trade fair and the area is well suited for a variety of sales events. There are three restaurant-ships in the port area, wooden promenade pier of 200 m and an art square.
