The tower gives panoramic views over the whole city! There are information boards provided so you can see what you are looking at and in which direction you are looking. On a clear day I can imagine that you can see for miles! Unfortunately, this was not the case when I was there but it was beautiful anyway. The area... More

There are not so many cities with more than 100000 inhabitants AND a 500 hectar natural park quite in the middle of the city. Puijo hill is such a place in Kuopio, Finland. The scenery itself is astonishing with old forest and nature reservoir. The tower is not the highest in the world, but the view over lake Kallavesi is... More

It looks ugly and a bit scary outside and even more scary inside but it is safe and worth a visit. The scene from the up is absolutely wonderful and gives you the idea what Finland is about: lakes and forests. On a good weather you see tens of kilometers away. Don't pay a visit on a cloudy day!

A nice tower though the viewing platform was not opened due to great wind. That was a pity. We did get a chance to see the panorama through glass. Opportunity to dine at their restaurant. Had a lovely blueberry cake. Price is not the cheapest.

Puijo tower itself is not very interesting, but in the surrounding protected forests there is absolutely wonderful nature trails.

The restaurant is located at the top of a television tower. The restaurant is entered by a central lift. The floor next to the outside wall revolves slowly making one rotation per hour so it is possible to see all the superb views. The food was also lovely.
