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.

We've been up to the tower while we stoped in Kuopio for a few days. The tower is loacated on top of a hill and allows a great view over the city Kuopio and its surroundings.

This tower is worth a visit. Beautiful view of all the lakes surrounding the area. There is also a ski jump that you can see from the tower.

These photos are from the bottom of the tower. We were there in summer and were amazed to see people jumping. It quite a site!!! The view from the top is really good. We had a coffe at the cafe up top but there is also a revolving restaurant if you don't get motion sickness:)

You need to go there and see the city from up above. 230m above Kallavesi you really see how Kuopio looks like.

The Puijo Tower is truly a place to go when you want to go sight-seeing, to experience the beauty of the Finnish nature or have an efficient power walk up the Puijo hill. The views are breath-taking and the forests are so pure and dense.

Beautiful view from the tower. There is a fee for using the elevator up to the tower. There is a souvenirshop downstairs and cafe on top on the tower. You get a filatelistic special cancellation to your stamp if you leave your mail tho the mailbox there.
