a few words about Kemi

Kemi is a town in Lapland, which is the northernmost province in Finland. The town is situated by the Bothnian Bay, right at the outlet of river Kemijoki. The population of kemi is close to 22000 people as of March 2016, and has an area of 747 square kilometers - although 652 of these are water! The economy is largely based on the two paper and woodpulp mills found in the city, along with a chromium mine as well. 

Notably, Kemi is also the home of the largest snow castle in the world - which is reconstructed each year with a different design.
