Lake Tuusula

Lake Tuusula


Located in Southern Finland, Lake Tuusula is considered the artists’ colony of Finland. In the early 1900’s, the Golden Age of Finnish Art, many masters left their imprint on the Tuusula Lake Road. Situated around this 6.0 square kilometres lake stood the houses of Jean Sibelius, Juhani Aho, Pekka Halonen, Eero Järnefelt, Joonas Kokkonen and Aleksis Kivi which are now turned into museums.

However, the main highlight was to visit the top of Sarvikallio. The cliff is steep but it gave an amazing view of lake Tuusula.
