Helena-Reet: With children on a road trip around Finland (VOL 10 – in Central Finland, Kuopio) Sightseeings + Travel photos!

NordenBladet – Having had our breakfast in Kajaani (read HERE) we started off towards Kuopio. To my mind, travelling by car is pure luxury – you are not bound by time limits, the cars will carry all your belongings, you can stop wherever you please, etc. Extremely comfortable and maintains the privacy.. You need not be seated next to a stranger like on the airbus, wait in the airport check-in line, etc.

From Kajaani through Sukeva, Soinlahti, Iisalmi, Peltosalmi, Kirma, Nerkoo, Lapinlahti, Mäntylahti, Alapitkä, Pöljä, Aappola, Siilinjärvi and Sorsasalo it is 170 km vi E63 road to Kuopio (ca 2 hours driving).

With its 118 434 inhabitants Kuopio is today the ninth biggest town in Finland. The Swedish lord and governer Per Brahe the Younger founded Kuopio town in the year 1653, yet officially Kuopio was recognized as a town from November 1775 on when the Swedish king Gustav III insisted on recognizing Kuopio as a town. Almost a quarter of the territory of Kuopio is covered by water bodies and half is covered by forest – thus the overall impression is very beautiful. I really like nature! Kuopio also enjoys having a lovely old town (a nice market place, an interesting market and a historical city hall). We spent two days with children in Kuopio. I had booked Sokos Puijonsarvi for two nights, but the children wanted so much to visit the SPA (we hadn’t visited a SPA already for a while… haha) and so I cancelled one reservation and we went to Rauhalahti SPA for one night. Kids were clapping their hands from joy and we did have a very pleasant evening.

On the second day we went shopping in Kuopio city center (I bought a short coat, a jacket, two cardigans and a new travel case), we were looking around to find new business partners for the cosmetics brand Elisheva & Shoshana (currently we are negotiating with a city center boutique… so probably soon one can purchase E&S handmade cosmetics products also from Kuopio!), then I also met an old friend of mine and in the evening we took photos with Estella Elisheva in Puijonsarvi Hotel for OHMYGOSSIP Teen in Ohmygossip Couture tank tops. I hope to upload the gallery soon enough.

There are various sightseeings in Kuopio, so it will depend on what one wishes to see. The best known sightseeings are for example the 75m high Puijo Tower with its rotating restaurant that accommodates 100 guests, designed by the architect Seppo Ruotsalainen (Puijontie 135, 70300) and Kuopio Art Museum (Kuopion taidesmuseo – Kauppakatu 35, 70100). We were already rather fed up with new information and all the sightseeings, so we simply enjoyed our vacation. It would have been great to visit Joensuu that is located east from Kuopio and Ilomantsi that is quite close to the Russian border, but we kind od started missing home and thus decided not to expand our travel route any further. We had covered 3000 kilometres already! In the next around-Finland blog already new towns and new cool experiences!
