Tuusula is in Uusimaa. The administrative center is the urban area of Hyrylä.
Tuusula is a suburban municipality, around 30 km north of Helsinki, made up of urban areas and villages. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Lake Tuusula was a popular destination for Finnish painters and other artists, who had their summer cottages along the shores of the lake. Some of them have been turned into museums.
Tuusula is a rural municipality with a long history, and formerly included the towns of Kerava and Järvenpää. Since the 1960s, the population has grown significantly along with the Capital Region and the region around it. In the last decades, Tuusula has become popular with families moving out from Helsinki to single-family homes in the urban areas and countryside.
