Riisa is a small, but interesting museum with beautiful pieces from the Finnish orthodox church. There was also a lot of information on the history.

If you hate bling this might not be for you. But for me it was breathtaking! The choir music, dim lights and all those art relics really stopped me. Byzantium in the heart of Savo, as someone said here :)

This museum is not included in the 14 euro Kuopio-museum card, which was a pity because it was 8 euro's per person (for students, for non-students even 10 euro). The museum was tidy and the staf was friendly. It is a quiet museum with a lot of treasures but for us it was a bit dissapointing. there was information in English, but only for a few things and it were long texts without the really interesting information like what you could see/certain symbols/hidden meanings. On the ground floor there were a few paintings. After 1 hour we were done, so not worth 8 euros, but good to see if you are interested in orthodox history and icons.

This museum has been renovated couple of years ago. Staff is friendly and you get basic information about museum in many languages. If you travel with your own car, remember to ask parkinglicense.
