The castle ruins in Kajaani are unique and place to see in two very special ways:
1. It is the most northest stone fortress in the world
2. It is the only castle in Europe that has a bridge built over it
I truly hope that some day the bridge will be removed and the castle rebuilt as good drawings of this unique fortress have already been found.
The ruins are easy to find as they are in the middle of Kajaani city, in the midlle of the river, just 200 meters from the main shopping street. Easy to access and get near even with a wheelchair.
You can fish around the castle with a permit from the city.
Last spring there were lots of swans swimming and sleeping around the castle ruins.
Even it is quite small, it is a very special sight to see.
