MARKET PLACE IN WINTER
In this photo you can see the big Christmas tree which we have every year in the market place. It was snowing slowly.
IN EARLY DECEMBER
The main street, Aleksanterinkatu (named after Russian Czar), is beautifully lit in winter. This photo was taken on the first Wednesday in December 2004 at around 7.30 in the morning.
AND NOT SO SHY YOUNG LADY
She's posing for anybody passing by! This small park next to the market place is unfortunately occupied mostly by people with drinking problem.
I often think that there are no old buildings in Lahti but I know there are some like this pretty one near the town hall. Like everywhere else you need to look up from time to time!
Church of the cross (Ristinkirkko)
This church is the last work of Finnish star architect and designer Alvar Aalto. I think he had a bad day when he designed it, though. To me it's just a boring ugly 70s style church.
Open in summer Mon-Sat 7-18, in winter 7-16. Big market on the first Wednesday of each month.

Cross country skiing and if you dare, try also the ski jump.
The heights are 70, 90 & 115 metres but there are also smaller hills of 20-40 metres, you can join the 6 years old for those...
