    Lahti Harbor by Lake Vesijärvi offers a great environment for a summer day. There are various restaurants, ship restaurants, and cafes with terraces. Cafe Kariranta is a former train station building.

    In addition to restaurants, the port area has a Pro Puu center with galleries and design stores. The most striking building is Sibelius Hall, where you can admire the modern wooden architecture.

    Several different lake cruises depart from the port. You can choose a short lunch cruise, an evening cruise on the Vääksy canal, or travel through two canals to Heinola.

    There is a 15-minute walk from the city center and half an hour from the railway station.

    The Church of the Cross is designed by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. It was built in 1978.

    From outside it is not the prettiest churches in Finland. The building is dominated by a cross design formed by 52 windows and a massive belfry of concrete.

    The beautiful interior has a triangular form which directs the attention towards the altar. The interior has the same vibe as you can feel in the Finlandia House in Helsinki.

    The sculpture Spirit of Freedom by Wäinö Aaltonen stands in the cemetery for the war dead.

    The Lahti International Organ Festival is held here.

    This house will be visited from further afield. Cafe / canteen on a flat lunch dining level. Guided tours worth a visit - available in several languages, guides professional. Interiors/exteriors worth seeing ...

    Some of the porters could be more friendly and take their customers into account: indoors, the sound of conversation and the voice of the conversation carries farther than you think - the criticism and other unnecessary buzz of fellow human beings could be left at home ...

    This shopping mall is located in the city center. It is conveniently connected to Scandic City Hotel.

    There are many shops, restaurants, and bars. On the ground floor is K-Supermarket grocery store.
