With its central location in southern Finland, the Lahti region is a lively regional centre with 200,000 people. Everything is but a short distance away and there are fast and comfortable connections to the metropolitan area from the municipalities in the region. The airport is only about an hour’s drive away from Lahti, and the train from Lahti to the centre of Helsinki only takes 48 minutes.
The City of Lahti and the neighbouring municipalities of Asikkala, Hollola, Hämeenkoski, Kärkölä, Nastola, Orimattila and Padasjoki form a diverse mix of urban life and idyllic countryside, all within a mere 15-minute drive from each other – quality of life you will easily fall in love with!
What makes the Lahti region particularly attractive is its versatility: you can lead an urban life in the city centre or live in an idyllic village or in the country, within only 15 minutes of the city by car.
