Jyvaskyla ©
Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Alvar Aalto Museum and The Craft Museum of Finland. Get outdoors at Himos Ski Resort and Leivonmaki National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Jyvaskyla: Pyha-Hakki National Park (in Saarijarvi) and Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Finnish Air Force Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Central Finland, stop by Viherlandia, and admire the landmark architecture of Kuokkalan kartano.

For maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Jyvaskyla day trip planner.
