Jyvaskyla ©
Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Explore hidden gems such as Kuokkalan kartano and Oravivuori Triangulation Tower. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Alvar Aalto Museum and Vitikkala Manor. Get out of town with these interesting Jyvaskyla side-trips: Keuruu (Old Church of Keuruu & Church of Keuruu), Joutsa (Leivonmaki National Park & Art Center Haihatus) and Himos Ski Resort (in Jamsa). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Jyvaskyla Art Museum, get engrossed in the history at Keski-Suomen museo (Museum of Central Finland), brush up on your military savvy at Finnish Air Force Museum, and don't miss a visit to University of Jyvaskyla.
