Kuopio is the centre of tourism and culture in the Finnish Lakeland. This vibrant university city is home to around 105,000 people and delights holiday goers with its natural beauty, a broad range of events, and great shopping and entertainment options.
Kuopio’s most striking landmark is the Puijo Tower. It’s an excellent place to start your tour of the city. The view from the top will take your breath away – the majesty of the forests and the lakes! At the market square and hall in the city centre, you’ll get a good feel for Savonian life: a relaxed mood, people who love to chat, and regional delicacies from vendace to pasties and kalakukko fish pies. The harbour invites you for a cruise of the stunning archipelago.
In Kuopio, everything is close – nature, culture, entertainment and services. You won’t waste time getting from point A to point B. Perhaps that’s the reason why we’re so cheerful!
