The village surrounding the Hollola Medieval Church is worth a small day trip. In addition to the picturesque church the tiny village offers art, shopping and cosy lunch restaurants.
The Medieval Stone Church of Hollola, which was originally the catholic church of Holy Mary, built in 1495-1510, is one of the most important medieval monuments in the Lahti region. By the gate there is also a belfry built in 1829-1931 according to the designs of C.L. Engel. Hollola Church is known for its richly decorated west gable end and the well-preserved wooden sculpture of the interior. The church is open daily in the summer time.

Opposite to the church you can find Vanha Kunnantupa which is a cosy lunch restaurant. Genuine Finnish food is served at Ravintola Kunnantupa restaurant on the other side of the church.

Right next to the church, when you continue on by a narrow alley, is artist Asta Pulkkinen’s Atelier. At the atelier you can also find a souvenir shop and a summer café. Close to the church there is also a Hentilä House Museum, which shows a good example of typical old houses of the Lahti Region.
