When planning a trip to Kuopio, make sure to consider our Kuopio car hire services as your means of personal transportation. The town was founded while under Swedish rule and has been around since the 1500s and its main distinguishing features are the lakes which surround it on three sides.
The city is served by Kuopio Airport which is located fourteen kilometers from the city and connected to it via bus routes and taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Kuopio car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once you’re in the city there are quite a few things that you can see and do while there, ranging from visiting the various sights to getting involved in some of the available activities.
One of the main attractions of the city, especially if you are interested in the Christian faith is the Orthodox Church Museum. It is one of the most ecclesiastical of Finland’s museums and completely dedicated to the Christian faith as well as its trappings exhibiting a large number of religious items.
Almost at the center of town you will find the Kuopio Open-Air Museum, this is something of a tradition with all major Scandinavian towns, a great way of preserving their historic center. The museum consists of several buildings, townhouses which still reside on their original foundations. The houses are furnished with as many original items as possible, much like a time capsule.
Another interesting attraction is the Puijo Tower which is a great place to get a wonderful panorama of both the city and its surrounding countryside. The tower features two observation decks and there is a revolving restaurant at the top of it, one of the best times to go up the tower is at sunset so that you can see the lakes reflect the sun’s dying light.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can expect to see on your Kuopio trip so make sure to employ our Kuopio car hire services in order to see these and many more.
