Akaa

Sweet town of Akaa

Akaa is a modern and eventful place located along the road from Helsinki to Tampere. We enjoy smooth traffic, cheap living, and nature, which you can access right from your home door. Akaa is also the honey capital of Finland. The title is based on ongoing, unique, and big apiary project in the city. In Akaa you find more than 30 apiaries, inhabited by 15 million bees. The bees enrich our nature.
