Information for foreign visitors
Lahti is the eighth largest city in Finland with 120 000 inhabitants. It is located 100 kilometres north of Helsinki and lies in a bowl-like valley formed by the Salpausselkä Hills. By the Lake Vesijärvi, Lahti is a gateway to the Finnish lake district and the inland waterways dominate the landscape north of the city. Logistically well positioned, Lahti has direct transport links by road and trail to St. Petersburg and Helsinki. Historically, Lahti is known as the center of Finnish textile and furniture industry. Today, we are a renowned design center and high level of environmental expertise.
