Find the sitting wolf statue, snuggle up next to it and take a picture. The bronze statue, depicting a wolf on a courting trip, is made by Henna Onnela and Eija Hänninen. A picture with the wolf will be a nice memory of your visit to Joensuu – or you may just let the wolf keep you company while taking a little break from shopping.
Taitokortteli - Artisans' Quarter
The distance to the enchanting handicraft and culture centre is only a few dozen meters. It is open to travellers around the year. In Taitokortteli, you can treat yourself at the Kauppaneuvos cafeteria and buy charming local products for yourself or your friends. Taitokortteli offers the magical feel of an old town.
Mukulakatu - for children
Mukulakatu, located across the square at Carelicum, is a favourite spot for children. The idyllic Mukulakatu alley with its wooden buildings, squares and ports is filled with various activities and things to see and do.
When you wish to pop in for some warmth, visit Joensuu's botanical gardens to get energised among tropical plants and colourful butterflies.
