We have compiled a total of ten location tips for capturing the best Uki moments of the summer. You’ll find the first five tips below!


City Center

The beautifully adorned shoreline of Kaupunginlahti is the gem of the central city, with its red warehouses and atmospheric lighting. Capture the impressive line of sailboat masts, boats gliding on the bay, the round sugar doughnut of Pakkahuone, or the southern European atmosphere of waterfront restaurants in the evening light.



Myllyrinne 3

Stop by Myllymäki Park located on the outskirts of the city center for a picnic, admire the four different old windmills, and the view of the wooden town below the park. Capture a nostalgic photo as sunbeams play on the wings of the magpie mill or capture the joy of children in the playground.


Kuuanvuorentie 169

Climb above the mundane to Kuuanvuori Hill in Kalanti! The breathtaking views from Kuuanvuori will leave you breathless, especially in the early morning and at sunset. In the majestic rocky landscape, you’ll be about fifty meters above sea level, at the highest point in the area.



The view that opens up a couple of hundred meters past the small shop along Hiuntie lives up to its name. Along the forest path, you can capture the setting sun behind the sea, the horizon adorned with rainbow colors, and the green sea crashing onto the shore.



Head to Ruokolanjärvi, located near the city center area, for a fishing trip or a boat ride with friends. Capture the moments on the lake and the beautiful colors of the fountain against the sun or wake up early to capture the morning mist settling over the lake.

Rent a bicycle, embark on a photography expedition, and share the summer gems of the city on social media using hashtags #uusikaupunki, #visituusikaupunki, and #ukilife.
