    • ” This town has an extremely beautiful and advantageous position, and no other market place in the whole region as far as to North Pole is as much visited as this town of Tornio. The Belorussians, the Laplanders, the Finns, the Swedes, hucksters from southern Finland and Sweden assemble here. Furthermore a great many of hucksters from Norway come here over the high mountains and across the wide wilderness.” In Midsummer 1519 Olaus Magnus, traveller and later on a bishop visited the market in Tornio. His description is almost 500 years old, but it is topical in Haparanda-Tornio of today:
