Tuusula region is just 30-45min from Helsinki and with a great variety of museums and restaurants, including my favourite buffet at Krapi (hotel and restaurant). You can truly immerse yourself in the history of Finland, while of course admiring the beautiful lake scenery. These places based on a biking trip around the lake, roughly 25km easy loop. - - - - - - 🇫🇮 - - - - - - - Tuusulanjärvi on täynnä mielenkiintoisia museoita ja ihania ravintoloita joista Krapin buffa on ehdottomasti suosikkini. Järven ympäri kulkea myös kiva n. 25km pyöräreitti jonka itsekin on polkenut.
