Lahti is a vigorous cultural, sports and business centre in Päijät - Häme. The modern lakeside city amidst the Salpausselkä ridge landscape of great natural beauty offers excellent year-round outdoor exercise and cultural facilities, as well as a favourable, vibrant business environment.
The very heart of our city is the market square with its cheerful stalls and outdoor coffee bars. On the eastern edge of the market square you will easily find the "kauppahalli" - which translates to `shopping arcade´. Walk through this interesting corridor of shops to the next street, savouring the sights and the smells, then back again to where you came in.
The harbour area, long forgotten but now rediscovered, is Lahti's new living room. Seat yourself on one of the lakeside terraces and simply absorb the beauty of the place, then go and be amazed by the Sibelius Hall, the musical fountains, the Lanu Sculpture Park and the Vonkale Fishing Park . All of these, plus our Summer Theatre, are on the same stretch of shoreline and all within easy walking distance of each other.
On the southern side of the city in the Laune Family Park and/or the Laune Domestic Animal Park the smaller ones of the family are sure to have a wonderful time ! In a straight line it isn't far to go - but jump on rubber-wheeled Pusku train for kids. Good fun !
If modern Finnish architecture interests you then the Lahti Cultural Centre is a must. This group of buildings contains the Lahti Theatre, the Lahti Public Library, the Lahti Adult Education Centre and the Lahti Design Institute.
Whether you are a devotee of track and field sports you should visit our Sports Centre. You'll be glad you did. Take the lift to the top of the biggest ski jumping hill for a breathtaking panorama and also to get some idea of how a ski jumper feels.
A little more special among the sights on offer are the rose garden Rosario, the presentation of wood species Arboretum and the observatory Ursa.
Your choice - but don't be shy about trying something quite new. Remember the words of the great American poet, Robert Frost; "Two paths diverged in a yellow wood, and I took the one less travelled by and that has made all the difference."
