Jyväskylä - Finland

These cards are both from Jyväskylä and both were sent by Heidi. The 1st one is from a meeting and the 2nd celebrates Heidi's 10th Postcrossing anniversary.

Jyväskylä is located in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. With a population of 135,591, is the largest city in the region of Central Finland. 

The Harju ridge is the best known of Jyväskylä’s observation points and green areas. Ascending its steep slope are the Nero steps, which were named after former city engineer Oskar Nero. There is a large building on the top of the Hill known as Vesilinna Water tower, which houses an observation gallery offering the best possible view of Jyväskylä, and Restaurant Vesilinna. The stone steps of Harju hill are flanked each summer by a fantastic array of flowers. The area contains a network of footpaths, a sports ground and summer theatre. - in:
