Petäjävesi [1] is a small village in Central Finland. Its main claim to fame is its wooden church dating back to 1765, a World Heritage Site as an exemplary piece of Scandinavian wooden architecture.

Get in[edit]

The nearest major city is Jyväskylä. Petäjävesi is on the Haapamäki-Jyväskylä railway line, and also accessible by Matkahuolto buses.
