    Mielenkiintoinen paikka vierailla ja nostalginen tunnelma. Jos tulet Lahteen niin tässä paikassa on käytävä.

    Internationally Lahti Sports Centre is most known for the annual Salpausselkä ski games. Already as a child, I watched them on the television like Holmenkollen ski games. So it was interesting to visit the actual site.

    You can find here the ski jump towers, ice hockey arena, ski museum, outdoor swimming pool, and much more. During the wintertime, there are ski trails in the area, and during the summertime outdoor hiking trails. In summer, you can enjoy the wonderful view from the observation deck at the top of the Lahti Ski Jump tower.

    Nature is also very beautiful here. The Sports Centre lies on the Salpausselkä Ridge, which was formed along the margin of the continental ice sheet during the melting phase of the last Ice Age some 12 000 years ago.

    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.

    Pikku-Vesijärvi is a large pond connected to Lake Vesijärvi. It is surrounded by a lush park.

    In the Kariniemi Arboretum, surrounding Pikku-Vesijärvi, you can find 45 different tree species to grow.

    There is a small pond where is Lahti Energia's water organ. It is also called the musical fountain of Lahti.
