Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Visiting Himos Ski Resort and Leivonmaki National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Old Church of Keuruu (in Keuruu), Oravivuori Triangulation Tower (in Korpilahti) and Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Alvar Aalto Museum, take an in-depth tour of Keski-Suomen museo (Museum of Central Finland), make a trip to University of Jyvaskyla, and explore the world behind art at Jyvaskyla Art Museum.
