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.

I visited Puijon tower with my language course classmates. It had already snowed a lot by then so the way to the tower were just out of this world! The trees were laden with snow and the passage was all white and snowy. Even from the viewing level, the views were breath-taking. The tower is approx. 5 min drive from... More

There is no many attractions to visit in Kuopio, but if you have time and you like beautiful landscapes this is a must see place. Especially in summer time you can see the beautiful Kallavesi lake and forests from here. It really looks like, that Kuopio is a city in the middle of the forest. Beautiful. The tower itself looks...

Go on top and take a look of all Kuopio. Then some food at the tower restaurant. These are must things to do when visiting but besides that Puijo does not offer anything else.

A very nice uphill trip either on the road or via the grand stair on the other side of the Puijo hill at the ski stadium by the ski jumpong tower. There are also stairs in the tower itself. An after all this climbing you can have a nice dinner/lunch at the tower restaurant and view the scenes 360'.

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
