Long Description:

Lahti City Hall, designed in 1911 by Eliel Saarinen, stands in a dominant position on Radiomäki hill at one end of Mariankatu street. The City Hall was completed in 1912, and was originally used by the municipal administration, the fire department, the police department and the town jail.

Eliel Saarisen vuonna 1911 suunnittelema kaupungintalo valmistui vuonna 1912 noin 4000 asukkaan kaupungin hallinnon sekä palolaitoksen, poliisilaitoksen ja kaupunginvankilan toimitiloiksi. Vuonna 1934 rakennukseen liitettiin kaupunginarkkitehti Kaarlo Könösen piirtämä laajennus, joka sulki eteläsivultaan avonaisen pihan.
