Map of Vihti

From the traveller’s perspective, Vihti can be divided into three areas:

  • 60.33424.321 Nummela is a town and municipality seat. With the population of 15,000, it holds roughly half of the municipality’s population. Here’s where you can find most of the shopping options, restaurants, nightlife, etc.
  • 60.41724.3261 Vihdin kirkonkylä (lit. Vihti’s church village) is a much smaller yet more historical town and a former municipality seat. It is often abbreviated as Vihti kk. In road signs and bus windows Vihti refers this particular town, not the municipality as a whole.
  • The surrounding rural area (including small settlements like Ojakkala, Otalampi, etc.) has very limited shopping and eating options but some of the top attractions of the area.
