Kuopio – a Lakeland harbour town

Like most Finnish provincial cities, Kuopio comes into its own in the summer when it plays host to a major dance festival, as well as a lively wine festival. The city’s essence, however, comes from its lakeside location on the shores of Kallavesi and its role as a harbour for lake traffic.

Puijo Tower

On a nearby ridge overlooking Kuopio is the Puijo observation tower and it offers some of the best lake views in Finland.
