Jyväskylä is called Finnish Athens but not because of the similarity of architecture; Jyväskylä is a major educational center of the country. The camera is installed at one of the central intersections of the city, not far from Kirkkopuisto Park, the city administration, and the bus and railway stations.

At the intersection of pedestrian streets, Asemakatu and Kauppakatu, we can see Compass, the most popular meeting place in the city center. Pedestrian streets in the heart of Jyväskylä are equipped with heating, so walking along them is comfortable any time of year; various sculptures are regularly exhibited near Compass, and in the evening, the intersection has colorful illumination.

Compass is surrounded by numerous shops, hotels, and restaurants, and the Pelaamo Jyväskylä Forum casino and Jyväskylä tourist center are also nearby. The city was founded in 1837 by decree of the Emperor of All-Russia and the Grand Duke of Finland, Nicholas I. Stone artifacts were found in the vicinity of Jyväskylä during archaeological excavations. Both historical and modern buildings of the city are worth looking at.
