Nurmijärvi is a village and the most populated rural municipality of Finland located 37 km north of the capital Helsinki.
Nurmijärvi literally means "lawn lake" although the lake that gave the municipality its name was drained in the early 20th century and is now nothing more than some flat fields near the village centre.
Nurmijärvi is best known as the birthplace of Finland's national author, Aleksis Kivi (1834-1872). His play Nummisuutarit (The Cobblers of the Heath) - with colourful scenes of rural life in the 19th century Nurmijärvi parish - are performed in summer at an outdoor theatre in Palojoki, the village where Kivi was born.
