    Get to know Kerava

    Kerava is small in area, only about 30 km2. Nevertheless, Kerava is the third most densely populated city in Finland with almost 38,000 inhabitants, right after Helsinki and Kauniainen. Kerava was once built as a marketplace in the area of the current station. In 1924 Kerava became a township and in 1970 the township grew into a city.

    Kerava Station is one of the stations on Finland’s first train line, the Helsinki-Hämeenlinna line. Kerava is about a 20-minute train ride north of the Helsinki city center. Its location as a transport hub near the capital creates great conditions for the development of the city.
