Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Petajavesi Old Church and Oravivuori Triangulation Tower will appeal to history buffs. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Alvar Aalto Museum and Toivolan Vanha Piha. Change things up with these side-trips from Jyvaskyla: Leivonmaki National Park (in Joutsa), Keuruu (Church of Keuruu & Old Church of Keuruu) and Himos Ski Resort (in Jamsa). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Finnish Air Force Museum, admire the striking features of Kuokkalan kartano, take in the waterfront activity at Jyvaskylan Harbour, and take a memorable tour with Laajis.
