A beautiful place to just walk around and to enjoy the atmosphere. Fish market once a month during the summer. The old fashioned Finnish style cafe is my favorite cafe ever. Also chek out the Sibelius Hall, the biggest woden concert hall in the world! In the park near by, you can find the biggest musical fountain in Scandinavia.more

Transportation to Lahti and around Lahti
The easiest way to get to Lahti is by train or bus (if you don't have your own car). Buses from Helsinki depart every half hours and it takes only 1½ hours to reach Lahti. Train from Helsinki is nowadays even a bit faster.
The bus and train systems are very good in Finland so Lahti is easily reached from all over the country.

Winterday in Lahti
Favorite thing: This morning I woke up early and I went for a long walk.
It was cold, about -20 degrees, the trees- also in the town are a lot of them - were frosted and the sun was shining. Everything was glimmering like diamonds. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.
So never miss to go for a walk on a very cold sunny day. But don't forget warm clothes.Related to:
