historical people

of :Category:Cities and towns in Finland. Jakobstad is way too small to deserve its own category at this point. The category has a total of '''three''' articles, one for the city itself and two for historical people associated with it. To see how minor this city is compared to the others with their own categories, see List of Finnish municipalities by population and the other Finnish city categories. Currently the '''next smallest''' city with its own category is Kajaani (see :Category:Kajaani), which also has very few articles. Kajaani is at place 21 - Jakobstad is at place 54. That's a bigger difference in placings than between Kajaani and the biggest city, Helsinki. According to the list, Kajaani has 35842 people, Jakobstad has 19457. That means Kajaani is 1.84 times as big as Jakobstad, '''and still''' is a reasonably small city in Finland. Keep in mind that of the other cities with their own categories, Kajaani is the '''smallest''', and even then it has such a huge difference compared to Jakobstad. I recommend this category be '''deleted'''.

Biographies are marginal items in a city category anyway. CalJW (User:CalJW) 17:27, 19 January 2006 (UTC) When Huovinen was six months old, his family moved to Sotkamo, where he lived until his death. As a child, Huovinen was known as well-mannered, yet he had a reputation for outlandish stories and occasional mischief. He went to high school in Kajaani, but his studies were interrupted in 1944 when he served as a volunteer AA gunner in the Finnish Army. He graduated after the war in 1946, enrolling in the University of Helsinki, from where he graduated with a M.A. in forestry in 1952. - AC Kajaani Kajaani Pohjois-Suomi (SPL Pohjois-Suomen piiri) AC Kajaani Kakkonen * * - logosize 150px city Kajaani, Finland league Mestis '''Hokki''' are a Finnish (Finland) ice hockey team based at Kajaani.

story art

-story art museum in the middle of downtown Kajaani exhibits a wide variety of art, in medium, content and theme. Photography, videography, installation art, and more can be found here. Exhibits change about 6 times a year. They also offer workshops, lectures, and performances (in Finnish, of course). There is little to no English available here, but that's rarely an issue. (Take a Finn with you if you'd like a more detailed description of each piece of art.) The museum is in front of the historic, yellow town hall (which features a clock tower). Just look for the nondescript, white-gray building with the word Taidemuseo on it. * Wikipedia:Kajaani Commons:Category:Kajaani

'''Kajaani''' ( inhabitants.

The town began in the 17th century, fuelled by the growth of the tar industry. It succumbed to Russian forces during the Greater Wrath of the 18th century, who ruined the castle in 1716. Today, the local economy is driven by mainly the sawmill, lumber and paper (paper industry) industries, although UPM Kymmene's Kajaani paper mill, the main employer from 1907 until 2008, has now closed. Kajaani Church was built in 1896 in the Neo-Gothic style by architect Jac Ahrenberg, replacing an earlier church. Kajaani Town Theatre was established in 1969.

Kajaani is home to two football clubs, AC Kajaani and Kajaanin Haka, and ice hockey team Hokki. Kajaani University of Applied Sciences, a small university of applied sciences, was established in 1992.
