King Custav III established the island town of Kaskinen in 1785. Its history has been characterized by the coastal location and sea related livelihoods: seafaring and fishing.

Maritime history is present at the old fishing harbour with its fishing barns, smokery and Fishing museum. The fishing harbour is still in use by the fishermen who supply the local restaurants and the smokery with fresh local seafood ingredients for you to enjoy. Sälgrund island pilot station is situated in beautiful natural surroundings by the open sea, only a one kilometre sea trip from Kaskinen Fishing Harbour.

Kaskinen represents over 200 year old town building tradition, characterized by the symmetrical grid town plan with wide streets and well-preserved wooden houses with spacious courtyards. A walk through Kaskinen's parks and market places gives you a chance to sense the old times and enjoy the relaxing athmosphere of this small wooden town.

Author’s recommendation

Experience a maritime adventure and spend a night in the old pilot station of Sälgrund. Taxiboat takes you there from early spring to late autumn.
