Lots to See, Experience and Enjoy
Now this is tough. That sentence shows how impossible it is to introduce, on only one spread, all the other things that Häme has to offer. Häme is simply options, enjoyment and opportunities galore.
ut let’s start with glass. Häme is the home of glassblowing and Iittala products. Exhibitions and various performances bring the genie in the bottle to life. The Armour Museum and the Artillery Museum in Parola, on the other hand, offer a view to more heavy-duty equipment. All three also have a strong national and historical dimension. A nice way to get to know Häme is by drifting back and forth either by just cruising, or by visiting various places of interest at the same time. Otherwise, the options can be accessed on a general level through the places to visit listed here. For additional information, please go to hame.fi. It features a handy search programme that will give you more information.
