Artisans' Quarter:

The yellow wooden house in the old centre is a quarter specialised in tourism, handicrafts and culture. You will find there a cosy café, small shops and the professional services of an arts & crafts centre.


When you wish to pop in for some warmth, visit Joensuu's botanical gardens to get energised among tropical plants and colourful butterflies.


Art centre located right at the centre of Joensuu organises diverse exhibitions throughout the year for Finnish and international art.

Children's world "Mukulakatu":

A wooden town with a square and a port built for smaller guests must surely be one of the main sights in Joensuu, if children are asked. The street built indoors is located in the North Karelia Museum right in the centre of Joensuu.
