Top Attractions in Jyväskylä

Every city has its own landmarks, recognisable buildings or monuments, which travellers want to see and experience during their visit. In Jyväskylä visitors are greeted, for instance, by the Kuokkala bridge, the Vesilinna observation tower on the Harju ridge, Alvar Aalto's architecture and Petäjävesi Old Church, which features in UNESCO's list of world heritage sites. Many of the landmarks look particularly appealing in autumn since the buildings also often double as light art installations.
