100 Steps in Lahti

2017–2018

The Finland 100 centenary exhibition titled '100 Steps in Lahti' takes you on a stroll along a historic Lahti street that is still important today. The route proceeds from the city's railway station to the harbour via Vesijärvenkatu, featuring places, stories, and memories.

Over the years, Vesijärvenkatu has been the eastern border of the town, a thoroughfare, a street of commerce and industry – a street for the residents of Lahti. Many businesses and phenomena that have had a key role in the development of Lahti were located along Vesijärvenkatu. Through them, the history of Lahti is connected to the history of independent Finland.

Welcome to the exhibition!
