A must in Kuopio

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.

Absolutely wonderful viewpoint from which one has the feeling of seeing half of Finland. Well worth the small charge. The surrounding area is nice for picnics and fairly free of midges

The Puijo Tower is worth the trip when you are in town. It only is 5 uros to be admitted to the tower. The elevator is very small and only holds 6 people. Also, it is very slow. But, the view is incredible from the top. You can eat the small cafeterina or restaurant. There is a very nice gift... More

Small souvenier shop at the entrance, plenty of time to take as many photos and enjoy the beautiful, gorgeous, landscape of Finland. Enjoyed the coffee and sampled some of the baking on offer. Well worth the trip.
