I have brought quite many visitors to see this place. This might not be so interesting for Finnish people, but people from other (not so northern) countries seems to enjoy.

Thunderstorm hit rapidly and it was exciting to see city under heavy storm. After 5 minutes it was over and I saw forest, mighty lake and city in beautiful sunshine.

This place is high! We visited Puijo area with an English colleague and he also loved the place. The restaurant there is 3-4 stars, but the place itself is 5 stars. Will visit again!

Magnificent views across Finland - Puijo tower is one of the best places to see the lakes and understand the beauty of Finland. Located in Kuopio, it is a great destination to go for a day or two and I highly recommend it.
