Kuopio : Michelin's recommendations
Kuopio was founded in 1782 on the orders of King Gustav III, on the shores of the huge and beautiful Lake Kallavesi at the heart of a region of immense forests served by a good network of waterways. Communication links improved rapidly during the 19C, greatly enhancing the town’s prosperity. Kuopio is an active provincial capital, a major university town and the ideal centre for exploratory boat trips.
