for Central Europeans 2021

Embark on a journey to the future European Environment Capital in 2021, Lahti, which is building the ecological future. Lahti is known for its unique nature and the landscapes of Salpausselkä and center of Finnish winter sports, whose summer lake scenery as a gateway to Lake Finland will charm anyone.

On the same trip, visitors have the opportunity to pop on the other side of the former Iron Curtain in Vyborg, the forefathers of your Lahti people.

The trip will be a unique opportunity to take time to see Vyborg, the most international city in medieval, Hanseatic and pre-war Finland. The city is located on the Finnish border less than a 2-hour train trip from Lahti. You will feel the “spirit of Vyborg” there, which is also cherished by modern-day Vyborgians.
