Atmosphere of Toivola Old Courtyard
Located at Cygnaeuksenkatu 2, the atmospheric Toivola Old Courtyard is one the most unique attractions in Jyväskylä. It takes visitors on a journey to a time when the clattering of hooves was a familiar sound in the narrow streets, and the townscape was dominated by low blocks of wooden houses with their gates and courtyards.

In addition to a shop, cafe and museum, Toivola Old Courtyard offers courses, workshops, guided tours for groups, exhibitions and events. In the summer, artisans sell their products at the storehouses.
