Kuopio is a modern economic centre in Eastern Finland. The breathtaking nature and quality services make it a great place for vacation. Kuopio is famous for the Finnish fish pastry (Kalakukko), and the dialect of Savo, as well as the hill of Puijo and the Puijo tower. Puijo serves also as a stage for an yearly World Cup ski jumping competition. In summer you can enjoy Kallavesi Lake by boating, by boarding a cruise, by shooting the rapids, or by going on a fishing trip or a jet-ski safari. Golfers will be delighted by the Puijo Golf Course. Horse-riding, trips by off-road vehicles are also available. The Kuopio region is also ideal for cross-country skiing and the ski centers of Tahko, Kasurila and Puijo are perfect for those who prefer downhill skiing. You can go ice-fishing or ice-skating on a frozen-over lake and even take part in the Finland Ice Marathon.
Surrounded by water on three sides and fringed by islands, Helsinki grew up around a natural harbor overlooking the Gulf of Finland. A city of wide streets, squares, and parks, adorned with sculpture, Helsinki was one of the world's first planned municipalities and is noted for its 19th-century neoclassical architecture. It is a city of bustling, colorful market squares and halls, of outdoor summer concerts and sports events, of seaside parks, of excellent cafes and restaurants and cutting-edge art in fine museums. It is also a pleasantly compact city, with many of the attractions in the central districts, within easy reach of one another.
