Kuopio

Understand

Kuopio is one of the many Finnish towns founded under Swedish rule. The town was established as a village in the 1500s and incorporated as a City in 1782. Kuopio is surrounded by lakes from three sides, which supplies loads of beaches and the feeling of water being always close. Part of the wooden houses arranged as a grid have been preserved in the centre which makes it a nice place to visit.

Do

  • The Puijo Panorama Tower lurks over the city on the highest hill far and wide. From here you have a stunning view over the neighbouring lakelands.
  • The Orthodox Church Museum is a leading museum of Orthodox Churches in Europe.
  • The Old Town Centre is south east from the main square and you can just walk around following your feet.
  • The Minna Canth House is the original house where the famous first Finnish female writer Minna Canth lived. Most noticeable it contains a replication of the Minna Canth room where she is said to have written some of her work.
  • The Kuopio Quarter-Block Museum in the old town has plenty of old buildings done up in their original style 150 years ago containing also a pharmacy museum and most enchantingly a little history of Wonderous Healers in Eastern Finland of which still two or three exist and offer their service to believing people today!
  • Passenger Boat Cruises on Lake Kallavesi are worth trying during the summer season (June-August).
