City of Jyväskylä

The Finnish 2015 CIDOC Summer School will be held in Jyväskylä, in the heart of the central Finnish lake district, some 270 km north of the capital Helsinki and within good traffic connections. The city is a lively university town with about 130 000 inhabitants. The architecture of Alvar Aalto in Jyväskylä is internationally known. “The big little city” accurately describes Jyväskylä.
