Central Finland – region of infinite lakes and waterways

Central Finland, known as the “Lakeland” region, is a picturesque area dotted with over 18,000 lakes and vast expanses of lush forest. The charming city of Jyväskylä is a hub of cultural activity, with museums, galleries, and music festivals galore. In contrast, the city of Kuopio boasts a beautiful lakeside location and a stunning Old Town. Visitors can enjoy various outdoor activities, from fishing and boating to hiking and skiing. The region is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Petäjävesi Old Church, a stunning example of Finnish wooden church architecture.
