about Jyvaskyla

Jyväskylä is a city located in central Finland, 140 km from Tampere and 270 km from Helsinki, near Lake Päijänne and Lake Keitele. It is the center of the Region of Jyväskylä, which has a population of 161,400 people. Due to the large number of schools in the city, it is known as the Athens of Finland, and is also famous for its many buildings designed by Alvar Aalto and for hosting Neste Rally Finland, which is part of the World Rally Championship.

In the opinion of its residents, Jyväskylä is a safe and pleasant place to live. It is cosy, yet has a youthful and international atmosphere. Thanks to the convenient size of the city and the bustling city center, Jyväskylä is "a small big city," where you can find all the services, schools, and jobs you might need within walking distance.

Residents benefit from a large selection of high-quality services offered by the municipality. These include education, cultural and social services, health services, technical infrastructure, environmental protection, and physical education services.

In Jyväskylä environmental protection is seen as a cooperative effort. The natural surroundings, which include lakes, forests, and beautiful parks give the town its unique feel. Life in Jyväskylä is as green as it is friendly.

At the end of 2003, Jyväskylä had a population of 82,409, while the Region of Jyväskylä had 144,746 inhabitants.

The current mayor of Jyväskylä, Pekka Kettunen, estimated in 2003 that the city and The Rural Municipality of Jyväskylä would combine within ten years. The town cannot initiate such a merger as it is the biggest municipal unit, but on the other hand it would not prevent such a merger either.

Jyvaskyla history

Jyväskylä was founded in 1837 by Nicholas I of Russia and it was essentially built from scratch. The original town was built between Lake Jyväsjärvi (which is connected to Lake Päijänne) and the Jyväskylä ridge, and consisted of most of the current grid-style city centre. In the early 20th Century, the town expanded several times.
