It was hot, almost too hot. By the lakeside, or at the harbour it is not too bad. Nice area with ice cream, restaurants and boats. Even you can book a flight over Kuopio.

The harbor area in Kuopio is ok with a couple restaurants, bars and cafes - nice when the weather is good and you can sit out on the terrace. It is more a location to catch one of the several boat cruises of the lake....More

Few Decades ago there were no roads and the Water route was the only possibility to make business in the Lake area. This is how the City Kuopio started to grow and flourish. I simply love these old ships and trade buildings that are now...More

Earlier we have been here in summer. Then we enjoyed cafeterias, walking and watching old ships. Cruises and even air taxi flights with a seaplane were available in summer time. Now we visited Kuopio Harbor for the first time in winter. We were surprised how...More
