Tornio on vuosisatainen Lapin portti, jonka menestys kauppa- ja markkinapaikkana perustuu edulliseen sijaintiin Tornionjoen ja Perämeren yhtymäkohdassa keskellä Perämerenkaarta.

Tornio sai kaupunkioikeudet 1621 kuningas Kustaa II Adolfilta ja nykyinen valtakunnanraja on profiloinut kaupunkia vuodesta 1809.

Tänään Tornio ja Ruotsin Haaparanta muodostavat kansainvälisen kaksoiskaupungin rajalla. Ainutlaatuisen rajayhteistyön tavoitteena on saavuttaa "kahden maan edut - yhden maan velvoitteet".

Torneå har i hundratals år varit en port till Lappland. Torneå har lyckats bra som handels- och mötesplats på grund av sitt läge där Torneälven och Bottenviken möts.

Torneå fick sina statsrättigheter 1621 av kung Gustav II Adolf och den nuvarande gränsen har profilerat/delat staden sedan 1809.

I dag har Torneå och svenska Haparanda vuxit samman . Dessa två kommuner har ett nära samarbete - det finska möter det svenska och erbjuder det allra bästa av två världar.

[EN]
For centuries Tornio has been the gateway to Lapland. Its success as a trading and market venue stems from its excellent location in the middle of the Bothnian Arc where the River Tornionjoki flows into the Bothnian Bay.

Tornio received its city rights from King Gustav II Adolf in 1621. The current border between Finland and Sweden has profiled the city since 1809.

Today Tornio and Haparanda in Sweden make up an international twin city. The aim of this unique border cooperation is to "enjoy the benefits of two countries but address the obligations of one country".
