"Hometown" Jyväskylä by kirahvi

Jyväskylä Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 37 photos

Jyväskylä is my hometown, the place I know inside and out. It's the place I love despite its occasional drawbacks, such as the Neste Rally every August, that brings thousands of drunk and badly dressed people into town. (I mean, when did fanny packs make a comeback in the Western world?)

There are a lot of students in Jyväskylä and most of them just move in there for 5 years or so and then leave again. Jyväskylä is a huge transfer point between two stages of life - highschool and full time job - and it seems nigh impossible to find anybody who was actually born there. Well I was!

So tag along, and let me try to show you some of the things that I love about my hometown. And maybe some of those I'm not so fond of, but that might pique your interest!
