Our Elina, whom we got as a gift from Central Finland, loves the verdancy and peace of Kuopio's forests. Puijo has excellent routes for walking and hiking for everyone in the family. Another one of Elina's tips is to take a refreshing walk beside the lake Kallavesi where you can admire the beautiful views. You will find more information about Kuopio's great exercise and outdoor places here. Elina recommends you pay a visit to the Puijo Tower from which you will experience one of the most beautiful views in the world - Savonia.
Our culture loving Kirsti invites you to get to know the heart of concerts in our city, the Kuopio Music Centre, as well as the pearl of theatre in Finland, the Kuopio City Theatre. Kirsti also invites you to experience the Kuopio Dance Festival, which is the oldest and largest dance festival in Nordic Countries. During one week you get to see international dance stars and the best Finnish talents.
One of the pearls of Kuopio is definitely the VB Photograph Centre which is located on the street next to our hotel in a quarter consisting of beautiful wooden houses. You can buy a ticket to the VB Photographic Centre from our hotel reception for a more affordable price.
Veijo, our meeting and event host, recommends ice skating on the beautiful Kallavesi Lake during wintertime. The best ice skating routes in Kuopio start from the harbour which is close to our hotel. During the summer Veijo steps onto a lake boat from the same harbour, enjoys a relaxing atmosphere and lets his eye rest on the beautiful landscape.
And what better way to spend a summer day in Kuopio than to take a small bike ride around Väinölänniemi, surrounded by the wonderful lake views! We have trendy Jopo city bikes waiting for our guest. The bike rent is included in the room price. Just grab a Jopo and enjoy the ride and the views it brings.
For shopping and souvenirs the best places are around Kuopio's marketplace.
Kuopio's Market Hall is the heart of Kuopio which is full of life and unexpected meetings. In our hotel's key card case there is a little surprise for you: discounts to Sokos and NINA & HENRI. During summertime Pikku Pietarin torikuja offers a large selection of individual gift items and utensils.
Hanna Partanen, the legend of Kuopio, bakes the best warm Kalakukko for homecoming gift. You can buy this delicious local traditional Finnish fish pasty from the marketplace and directly from the bakery on Kasarmikatu. You can also order a Kalakukko in advance to our hotel's reception which is convenient!
You are warmly welcome to be our guest!
Please don't hesitate to ask our reception for more information.
