City Bridges


The Lumberjack’s Candle Bridge and the Ounaskoski Bridge cross the Kemijoki River right by the Rovaniemi city center, offering two different and easily accessible bridge locations for productions.

The Lumberjack’s Candle Bridge (Jätkänkynttilän silta in Finnish) is a true Rovaniemi landmark. The modern cable-stayed bridge was opened in 1989, and it features four car lanes and two sidewalks. The name of the bridge comes from its design; the red lights at the tops of the two pillars resemble a burning lumberjack’s candle.

The Ounaskoski Bridge is located only a stone’s throw away. First built in 1934, the historic construction was completely destroyed in the Lapland War in 1944, and then reconstructed in 1951. The bridge has two stories; the upper section is for railway traffic and the lower one for cars and pedestrians.
