    From Toivola Old Courtyard you can find artisan’s boutiques and workshops, Toivola Restaurant, and craftsmen’s homes.

    The Coppersmith’s House and the Carpenter’s House are the oldest remaining wooden residences in Jyväskylä. They were built in the 1840s.

    These craftsmen's homes have functioned as interesting museums since the mid-1950s. Here you can experience what life has been 180 years ago.

    This museum showcases the diversity of nature in Central Finland. It has an impressive collection of over 250 000 samples of flora and fauna typical for Central Finland.

    The museum is situated in Vesilinna Watching Tower. On the same visit, you can have a bird's eye view over the beautiful scenery.

    I was really surprised that something like that could exist almost in the city center! I felt like hiking through the lush forest somewhere much more south than Finland. And I didn't get tired because it's not very long. If you like to take photos of nature, wilderness, ferns and horsetails growing everywhere or macro photo, you should take your camera with you. And it's better to have comfortable shoes (but not necessary).
    What I really liked:
    - Quiet green trail trough the lush greenery, with the birds singing and dragonflies hunting for smaller insects, deadwood is left where it fell and slowly is covered by moss;
    - Within a city and close to the city center - 10 min walking distance, 5 min cycling;
    - It's not a long path, but diverse. You can go fast through it in 20 min, but if you like nature or photography or both you can spend there more than an hour.
    - good for quiet walk without a hurry, where one can stop and appreciate nature.
    Some thing that could be a problem for someone:
    - I didn't find any toilets near the start or end of the trail.
    - not accessible by wheelchair. The trail has stairs in both ends and in the middle.
    - there are information stands about the place and plants growing there, but only in Finnish.
    Overall I'm happy that I found this place and I'm positively surprised about it's location (within the city) and the attitude to the nature you can see there how more or less natural forest should look like.
