We walked across this bridge at night and the view was fantastic. Well worth it even if it’s cold and a bit windy.

This bridge is an engineering marvel. It's lovely and sturdy. It looms up out of the river, but not at all an eyesore.

It connets the centre of Rovaniemi and Ounasvaara, where sport area is. Nice view over the lake but you cannot stop, must walk and take picture.

This bridge stretches across the lake. Its nice to look at and its also very functional. You can cross on foot, by bike or car. Close to the bridge there is a really lovely sandy beach.

From our hotel at Rovaniemi city centre, we took a stroll to the bank of a river to catch a glimpse of the Bridge. At the opposite bank of the river, we could see facility for winter swimming. Good photo site.

We had driven past this bridge a few times during the day on our way to Inari. We had decided to take some pics at this iconic Bridge at Midnight, as we were chasing the midnight sun. The bridge is beautiful and the water beneath...More

Sorry to disappoint, but for me, it's just a bridge. Ive read about all the historical meaning and etc, but really, there's nothing special about it's design nor location. I crossed it, then I got in the margins of the river to see it from...More
