Welcome to Lahti!

Lahti has the best of both worlds: the attractiveness, intimate cosiness and originality of a small town, yet the services, efficiency and logistics of a major city. Lahti is a city of 120,000 residents and a centre for a region of 200,000 people. Residents appreciate their city’s wide range of amenities, convenience, and proximity to the great outdoors. The city is also a home for several higher education institutions.

Lahti Region is easy to reach. The city is located less than an hour from Helsinki Airport by train or car, and an hour from the harbours of Helsinki. And that’s not all: when you get to Lahti, you’ll be surprised how close everything is. No rush hours or sitting in cars for hours. This means you can use your time effectively.

You can find more information about the city and its services on lahti.fi/en.

Lahti - The European Green Capital 2021

Lahti was chosen as the European Green Capital 2021 (European Green Capital Award, EGCA) as the first city in Finland. The award was a proof of Lahti’s persistent environmental work as Finland’s leading environmental city.
