Where sea and rivers meet
Ii makes up for its shortest of all municipal names by containing much that is extraordinary. Ii is a beautiful municipality, situated on the coast at a point where the Iijoki, Kuivajoki and Olhavanjoki rivers enter the Gulf of Bothnia.
In former days Ii was a large parish, and has been known as a trading centre since the 14th century, when it was sending salmon, peat and furs out into the world from harbour Iin Hamina. These markets helped Ii to develop an open and international atmosphere, which served as the platform for the region’s long-standing industrial traditions.
Today the Ii region is home to several hundred companies. These can be found in all parts of the municipality; in population centres, in the vicinity of residential areas or in business conglomerates such as Ii Valley, a notable and recognized centre of business, merely 25 minutes by car from the centre of Oulu. Industrial activity has grown robustly since the 1980s.
