Rovaniemi is located just on the border on Arctic Circle. It's also the home town of Santa Claus himself, and also the winner of 2006 Eurovision Song Contest - Lordi - comes from Rovaniemi. Rovaniemi can be called as the 'gateway to Lapland'. The Rovaniemi airport is located 10 km from the city center and is the busiest airport in northern Finland. It is also the base of Lapland Air Command air force unit.
