Street names

Kokkola sign fi sv.jpg

In Kokkola all street names are presented in two languages, in Finnish and in Swedish.

Municipal merger 2009

Due to municipal merger Kokkola, Kälviä, Lohtaja and Ullava do form a new bilingual town. Therefore, all street names in formerly Finnish speaking municipalities (Kälviä, Lohtaja, Ullava) are presented in Swedish too.

Tens of duplicate street names did exist in uniting municipalities. To avoid same street names existing in one town, all duplicate street names are changed until the turn of year 2009.
