Visit Lahti - Lakeland Finland

Lakeland Finland starts from Lahti

Have you noticed that when seen from the south, Lahti is the first real lakeside city and Lake Vesijärvi is the most southern body of water in Lakeland Finland? The heart of Lakeland opens up from Vesijärvi through the Vääksy canal: Lake Päijänne, which provides drinking water for one million Finns.
