Lahti is the city of sports and design
Lahti is a well-known ski city with 120,000 residents. The city organizes the Finlandia Ski Marathon and the Lahti Ski Festival, which are among the toughest sporting events in Finland. Many Finns follow them year after year.
In addition, Lahti has Institute of Design, which the locals call ’Muotsikka’. The institute is rather small, yet well-known internationally. For example, both clothing designer Katri Niskanen and Harri Koskinen, who designed the popular Block lamp, attended the institute. New, fabulous Finnish design is constantly created in Lahti. There are also other recreational activities available for residents. For example, a relaxing summer evening cruise or a refreshing jaunt in nature will inspire you in the middle of the daily grind.
Avara’s Lahti locations are suitable for an active resident with a twinkle in their eye. Lahti also welcomes families with children and students who want to live in a nice community close to the countryside.
