CREATE NEW MEMORIES KUOPIO IS one of the busiest event cities in Finland. There’s always something going on – even during the winter. The snowy season is a wonderful time for new experiences. To get the most joy and new happy memories out of winter, it pays to experience something totally new. WOULD YOU like to go mountain biking? The new routes were opened for this winter in Puijo, Kurkimäki and Tahko hill terrain. Or you might want to go snowshoeing, skiing or skating on the frozen lake Kallavesi. I personally can’t wait for the moonlight skating, organized in connection the Ice Marathon in February. IN THE friskier weathers you can stay inside and for example try out the new aqua training facilities of Spa Hotel Kunnonpaikka. It has moved the gym into the pool – and it sounds exciting! Of course you can always just throw yourself down on the couch, read a good book and enjoy a hot chocolate. WE ARE especially proud of the great restaurant

scene of Kuopio. Our region was chosen to be the first Finnish European Region of Gastronomy for the year 2020. The uniqueness of the food culture of the Kuopio area has thus been internationally recognized. I CHALLENGE you to try something new this winter. We created a guide to the best restaurants, activities and events for Kuopio and Tahko – choose what you like best! ENJOY YOUR VACATION!

Pleasure to meet, Kuopio! THE PEOPLE OF Kuopio are connected by their laid-back attitude towards life. A casual chat with a stranger can emerge at the cashier’s, at the market or while waiting at the bus-stop. It’s not at all uncommon to end up talking to total strangers on the town or while picking up souvenirs. Savonian people are surrounded by a casual atmosphere, which is present in all meetings and as a genuine customer friendly attitude. The city combines nature and the entertainment of a busy urban area. The pure nature is a central part of the area and the fresh air of the wilds is only fifteen minutes away, no matter where you happen to be. The possibilities offered by nature are just around the corner – how would you like skating, skiing or perhaps snowshoeing in the brisk cold air? Kuopio is easy to come to and enjoy, because the city has an excellent location. Finland is at the edge of western and eastern worlds. Helsinki is a central crossing point for air travel, and there are multiple flights arriving from there to the Kuopio– Tahko area every day. In addition, it is an easy and quick drive from the east. Time isn’t wasted in excessive travelling, because everything is conveniently close. The easy-going and peaceful atmosphere helps you get to the holiday mood. WHETHER YOU’RE HAVING a short or long vacation, Kuopio is a place which is close and where you can definitely get away from the humdrum of everyday life.

KUOPIO

A Winter Day

for Kids

TEXT DIGIMAG/HETA JYRÄLÄ PHOTO KUOPIO−TAHKO MARKETING

A relaxed winter day includes conquering the sled hills and enjoying activities inside if it gets freezing. Kuopio offers a lot of sights to see and experiences for the whole family. ПЕШЕХОДНЫЕ ТРОПЫ

FOOTPATHS A wonderful way to spend one's holiday on a bright frosty winter day is to have a walk in the city centre. For example the path around Valkeisenlampi is suitable by length and its easiness to small children. Along the path one can enjoy beautiful parks and stay and play in the playground.

Прекрасный способ провести морозный солнечный день в отпуске – прогулка по центру города. Например, тропа вокруг пруда Валкейнен подходит по длине и степени сложности для маленьких детей. Во время прогулки можно полюбоваться красивыми парками, а также поиграть на детской площадке.

PLAYDATE IN THE MARKETPLACE

ДЕТСКИЙ ПРАЗДНИК НА РЫНОЧНОЙ ПЛОЩАДИ

The Kuopio marketplace offers activities for children during the winter from Monday to Saturday between seven a.m. and three p.m. The Marketplace has, among other things, a playground, where one can feel free to play. In the course of winter the marketplace will house the traditional winter season market fair, where you can certainly find something to do and entertainment for the whole family is guaranteed.

ПОПЛАВАЙТЕ

TAKE A SWIM The public swimming pools and spas in Rauhalahti and Kunnonpaikka delight the little splashers. All of the above offer shallow children’s play pools and a variety of water toys for the little ones. In Rauhalahti one can find a fun waterslide for children unable to swim. The minislide in the children’s play pool in Kunnonpaikka on the other hand delights the little paddlers.

PLAY CASUALLY Dive into the world of retro games in the Game Over Arcade or be charmed by the possibilities of virtual reality in Virtuaalimaailma Warppi. In the world of these games both children and adults get their fill of entertainment. Many restaurants also offer different gaming and play areas for children.

TO THE HILLS! On a gorgeous winter day it pays to take advantage of the hilly Kuopio’s many sled hills or the Kasurila ski resort’s slalom opportunity in Siilinjärvi. Get your sleds and gliders and run to the hills!

HOP AND PLAY Playing, jumping and the joy of exercise for all ages can be found in the Bellaranta Activity Centre. Take all your siblings and try the trampoline arena in Huippu Centre or the indoors activity park HopLop at Bellanranta.

FALL FOR THE MUSEUMS The number one place for fans of automobiles is the Kuopio Automobile Museum, where you can find a variety of cars, motorcycles and equipment. The exhibition changes constantly, so there is plenty to see. The Old Kuopio Museum takes you to the world of history.

Зимой на Рыночной площади Куопио мероприятия для детей проводятся с понедельника по субботу между 7.00 и 15.00. В числе прочего на Рыночной площади есть новая игровая площадка. Зимой на Рыночной площади проходит традиционная зимняя ярмарка, где непременно найдутся занятия и развлечения для всей семьи.

Маленьких пловцов порадуют общественные бассейны и спа Раухалахти и Куннонпайкка. Во всех из них есть детские лягушатники и водные игрушки для малышей.

RIISA Orthodox Church Museum of Finland

Kuopio Automobile Museum

Riisa is one of the most remarkable Orthodox church museums in Europe. For the most part, the collection represents the 1700’s and 1800’s, but older artifacts date back to 1100’s. The hall contains for example Byzantine culture and Finland’s Orthodox church history.

The Automobile Museum is an enthusiast’s dream. There is an abundance of cars, many of which are in fine running order. The selection is constantly changing, new cars come and sometimes cars are out on a drive. Included in the collection are motorbikes and accessories related to motoring.

РИЗА является одним из самых примечательных музеев православной церкви на территории Европы. В коллекции главным образом представлены экспонаты 1700-х и 1800-х годов, но есть и более старые артефакты, датированные периодом начала XII века. В выставочном зале демонстрируются, например, образцы византийской культуры и вещи, связанные с историей финской православной церкви.

Автомобильный музей был создан по инициативе одного из энтузиастов этого направления. В нем представлено большое количество различных транспортных средств, многие из которых находятся в прекрасном состоянии. Перечень экспонатов постоянно меняется – поступают новые автомобили, а некоторые выставляемые машины иногда активно эксплуатируются прямо на дорогах. В музее также демонстрируется коллекция мотоциклов и различных аксессуаров, связанных с автомобильной сферой.

Puijo

Kolmisoppi-Neulamäki

PUIJO AREA IS part of the psyche of people of Kuopio. Ranging roughly 660

hectares, the recreational area offers a multitude of opportunities for winter activities. In addition to the illuminated ski tracks there are three two-kilometre nature routes, which have signposts to familiarize the hiker with the diversity of the surrounding nature and wildlife. After a nice day outdoors, it pays to visit the tenants farm in Konttila, which presents the traditional Eastern Finnish hill-living with its ample fields. The generous selection of routes in Puijo is sure to have suitable options for the smallest members of the family as well.

THE AREA OF Kolmisoppi-Neulamäki has three nature routes, located almost for their whole length in the conservation area connected to the Natura 2000 network. Over 5 kilometres in length, the route circling Neulamäki, Neulamäen kierto, is a classic that offers the hiker a chance to wonder, among other things, at the imposing forests and rocks surrounding Vuorilampi. Vanhan metsän polku, on the other hand, is a route that presents beauties of an aging forest. The area offers sights for the whole family, but it pays to take note of the great height differences of the routes.

On the journey one can visit Jätkänkämppä, a log drivers house built in the 1950s turn into a restaurant, still housing the log drivers’ tradition in the form of pictures and tools. The route is easy to travers and is thus suitable for the whole family.

cially suitable for families with children. The area has a nature route about a kilometre in length that presents the local wildlife and species of birds and mammals that enjoy the company of people. On the side of the route can be found nest boxes for bats and winter nests of hedgehogs. The mighty European alders on the Hakolahti shore function as a feeding ground for flying squirrels. The Velhometsä route is easy to travers, and suites the smallest members of the family perfectly.

The area of Kuopio boasts a total of 450 kilometres of well-maintained ski trails.

T

he Finns have always been a skiing nation and have been very successful in various skiing competitions. It is no wonder that the area of Kuopio boasts a total of 450 kilometres of well-maintained ski trails. There are magnificent areas for skiing enthusiasts, so skiing can be more of a relaxed hobby than a strenuous workout. Starting the journey is easy. Skiing only requires suitable outdoor clothing, skis, poles and boots. Equipment can be pur-

chased at sports stores or rented from many providers. Kuopio has numerous trails of different lengths from which to choose. For example, Puijo Ski stadium near the centre of Kuopio is a good place to start skiing since the trails are quite level. In the middle of winter, skiing on the frozen lake is a special treat not to miss. ASIDE FROM skiing, the wintery nature can be traversed by snowshoes or snowmobile. The versatile terrain offers a wide range of driving conditions for a snow-

mobile driver, for which one should prepare well. The trails run partly over frozen lakes, where one should be especially careful. The well-maintained and marked snowmobile trail network runs for approximately 225 kilometres in Kuopio and in Northern Savonia for almost 1100 kilometres.

Ice fishing is an ancient type of fishing in Finland. You use an auger to drill a hole in ice on a lake, from which you catch fish.

I

Ice fishing as a hobby is fun, exciting and affordable. Equipment is cheap and you need no fishing licence. It’s important to remember dress warm, as ice fishing mainly means sitting still in freezing weather.

EXPERIENCED ICE fishers know the

best fishing spots. A beginner may find these spots due to clusters of fishing holes, and thus benefit from good fishing spots. Without such

Skating in Kuopio

clusters, you can start where the fish hang around during summer, which is next to reeds and headlands. There are different methods of ice fishing. The methods differ from each other based on the jig i.e. lure in use. If the fish take bait easily, a vertical jig is the best to use. A type of weighted jig called mormuska works better when the fish take bait poorly.

THE CITY OF Kuopio has a service network of over 50 ice

hockey and skating rinks or areas. The list of sites to be frozen can be found on the city’s web page. LIPPUMÄKI ice hockey rink, speed skating rink and skating rink. Rauhalahdentie 66, Kuopio

Swimming in a frozen lake can help relieve ailments and aches. Although the freezing cold water may horrify you, the feeling after a dip is well worth it!

T

hey say you get a great feeling from swimming in a hole in the ice. You get the same endorphin rush in just a couple of minutes that you get from an hour’s jogging. It’s also viewed as a good way to relax! The most active enthusiasts go for a swim every day, sometimes twice. You get a brisk start to your morning when you take a plunge at 6 am. The most active plungers can amass around 300 dips in a year. Members of the Winter Swimmers get a key to the sauna. A paid up member can go swimming as much as they like. There are many rumors surrounding the benefits of swimming in the ice hole but only a small amount of scientific research has been carried out. Cold tolerance has been shown to improve after only a few dips while different aches and joint pain have been found to be relieved due to regular dips. An experienced swimmer tells how swimming helps with back pain. The cold therapy can also be a help to those suffering from rheumatism, asthma and MS, especially on a regular basis. www.digimag.fi

Other health benefits include increased blood circulation and improved metabolism. Because of this it is also believed that skin stays firmer. Some also swear that it is a protection against the flu. In addition to the physical benefits, winter swimmers say that they feel relief from stress, the mind is said to clear, just like when meditating. The revitalizing effects of swimming last the whole day, and when evening comes sleep feels better than ever. BEFORE TAKING up winter swimming it is good to talk to your doctor if you suffer from heart problems or high blood pressure. Ice swimming is a suitable hobby for all ages. Families visit the sauna and the youngest swimmers are only six or seven years old. Older enthusiasts have already past 80 years of age, so a brave winter dip is a suitable activity for the whole family. Winter swimming doesn’t require specialized equipment. Compared to summer swimming the only difference is the use of shoes or socks on the way to the water, and some put a hat on too. The water is 4°C, so this is kind of like shock treatment for the body!

The concept of AQUA SPORT training that we have created is unique in Finland. Many of the equipment used are also usable in rehabilitation. The exercises for muscle fitness and movement as well as weight-reduced walking exercise using the new equipment will bring new power and effectiveness to the exercise, Heli Vehkala says.

ТРЕНАЖЕРНЫЙ ЗАЛ В ВОДЕ! КУОПИО ИЗВЕСТЕН МИРУ КАК УДИВИТЕЛЬНЫЙ КРАЙ ТЫСЯЧИ ОЗЕР. ТЕПЕРЬ У НАС ТАКЖЕ ЕСТЬ ТРЕНАЖЕРНЫЙ ЗАЛ В БАССЕЙНЕ. СДЕЛАТЬ ОТПУСК ПОЛЕЗНЫМ возможно, выделив время на эффективные водные упражнения. Аквааэробика — один из самых популярных видов фитнеса, в силу своей универсальности она подходит абсолютно всем, независимо от возраста, пола и уровня физической подготовленности и является отличной альтернативой занятиям на суше. В спа-отеле Kunnonpaikka разработана концепция AQUA SPORT. Благодаря специальным приспособлениям упражнения на воде сочетают эффект тренажерного зала с групповыми занятиями. Это уникальный инновационный проект, не имеющий аналогов в Финляндии и за ее пределами. – Мы используем водный инвентарь для спорта и реабилитации наших итальянских партнеров, чтобы перенести эффект тренажерного зала в бассейн, – рассказывает Хели Вехкала, директор по обслуживанию Kunnonpaikka. В наших тренировках используется подиум с пилоном Аqua Pole ®, также дополнительные элементы, такие как поперечная перекладина, ленты для фитнеса и Boxing Bag – боксерская груша. Все эти приспособления мотивируют выполнять тренировки даже с большой интенсивностью. С помощью плота Reaxing® Reax Raft вы развиваете силу и выносливость, скорость реакции и координацию. Также тренировки проводятся на установленных в бассейне велотренажерах, беговых дорожках и вод-ных батутах. – Наше инновационное оборудование помогает обрести или усилить мотивацию к занятиям спортом. Сопротивление воды поможет выполнить даже самую тяжелую нагрузку без вреда для здоровья. С другой стороны, вода позволяет человеку чувствовать себя легким при выполнении реабилитационных упражнений. Особенно хорошо бег в воде подходит для людей с лишним весом, страдающих от болей в суставах и для общей реабилитации, – продолжает Вехкала. Любой желающий может взять уроки AQUA SPORT за половину стоимости с с 16.12.19 по 3.1.2020 Стандартная стоимость занятия 18 евро (включено посещение спа). – С собой вам надо взять только хорошее настроение и купальный костюм. Благодаря специфическим свойствам воды наши тренировки подходят людям всех возрастов и уровней физической подготовки. Водные тренировки поднимают настроение и укрепляет мышцы тела, – подытоживает Вехкала. СПА-ОТЕЛЬ KUNNONPAIKKA Jokiharjuntie 3, 70910 VUORELA (Siilinjärvi)

A gym –

in water! TEXT DIGIMAG/MARLENE SANOUKIAN PHOTOS DIGIMAG/MIRKA HAPPONEN

Kuopio is known for its surrounding body of water and now we also have a unique gym in water. A HOLIDAY IS made perfect by a powerful

hydrobics training. Exercising in water broadens the possibilities for exercise, because the water element brings both challenge and relief to the exercise, whichever is needed. The Spa Hotel Kunnonpaikka has refined the possibilities offered by aqua training into a new AQUA SPORT concept. In it the water element is combined with gym workouts and team sports, with the help of brandnew equipment. The concept is unique in Finland and a quite unique entirety internationally as well. – With our Italian partners, we have combined their products suitable for aqua training and rehabilitation equipment into a new whole and have created a gym world in water, explains the Director of Rehabilitation and Wellness Services Heli Vehkala. The equipment includes Acquapole® poles, which are connected to additional parts, like horizontal poles, resistance bands and Boxing Bags, which help motivate even the tougher workouts. Reaxing® Reax Raft on the other hand help facilities training strength and endurance, yoga or pilates in water. One can also exercise using the exercise bike, treadmill and trampoline immersed in the pool. www.digimag.fi

– Our new equipment brings a new side to training as well as creates motivation – those looking for intense training can get an added resistance from the water, but water can also be utilized in the medical rehabilitation of persons with severe disabilities, and facilitate the training of persons with joint pains or overweight people, Vehkala says. Everyone can try ACQUA SPORT for a halfprice during 16.12.2019–3.1.2020. Normally the class fee is 18 € including Spa Fee. – The only thing you need is an open mind and a swimsuit. Due to the weight-reducing effect of water the class is suitable for all ages and physical conditions. Aqua training offers experiences for both body and mind and helps you train so hard that instead of water you’ll be dripping sweat. The new element will definitely bring new motivation to exercising, Vehkala promises.

Puijo calls to ADVENTURE

TEXT DIGIMAG/MAIJU KORHONEN PHOTO PUIJO PEAK

The dog sled rides and Snow Tube slide bring new life to the Puijo area.

The renewed Puijo hilltop area offers activities for the whole day. THE 100-METRE-LONG TUBE slide brings the super popular Snow Tube activity known around slalom and ski resorts right next to the Kuopio centre. – You can slide down the slope between the Puijo Tower and Puijo Cottage (Puijon Maja) traditionally on a sled, Stiga or a glider, and the return trip to the top is traversed on a 30-metre-long rolling carpet elevator, the tourist entrepreneur of Puijo Peak Oy Markku Komppula explains. In addition to real slide experience a visitor gets to try out the virtual ski jumping in the Puijo K120 large hill with the help of VR technology. WHEN YOUR CHEEKS are red with the frost, it

feels good to sit in a sled pulled by Siberian Huskies and get to know the purity of Finnish nature. A sled ride includes free entry to the 75 metres tall Puijo Tower, which offers a wonderous view over the snowy city. After an active day outside a tasty meal at the restaurant at the top of the tower or in the atmospheric Puijo Cottage right next to the Snow Tube ride is just what you need. The nature walk for kids made using AR technology offers useful information about Puijo area wildlife for the smaller mem-

bers of the family, while the adults sip their coffees for dessert. – Souvenirs can be bought from the souvenir shop, designed and realised by Jukolaind, and located at the bottom of the tower. The interior decoration has been made ecologically sustainable by using wood that hasn’t been procured by clearcutting, conforming to Puijo Peak Oy values, Komppula says. IF YOU HAVE energy after the meal, it is nice to put on skis and go for a small ski trip in the snowy forest or continue your joyful sled day on the hill. The renewed Puijo offers activities for the whole day to city dwellers, tourists as well as company recreational days. – Puijo can be a wonderland for the family as well as an experience for company groups. It is open every day of the year with the exception of Christmas day, when even Puijo has its Christmas peace, Komppula says.

ПУЙО ПРИГЛАШАЕТ ЗА НОВЫМИ ВПЕЧАТЛЕНИЯМИ! НА ОБНОВЛЕННОЙ ВЕРШИНЕ ПУЙО РАЗВЛЕЧЕНИЙ ХВАТИТ НА ЦЕЛЫЙ ДЕНЬ! ГЛАВНЫМ ЗИМНИМ СОБЫТИЕМ на Пуйо, несомненно, станет снежная горка Snow Tube. Раньше подобные спуски можно было найти только в горнолыжных центрах, а теперь вы можете прокатиться по 100 м склону недалеко от центра Куопио! – Snow Tube проложен между башней Пуйо и рестораном Puijon Maja, а на расположенной по соседству традиционной горке вы можете кататься на обычных санках и ледянках, рассказывает директор Puijo Peak Oy Mаркку Комппула, - подняться обратно на горку можно с помощью коврового подъемника. После катания на реальной горке, вы можете попробовать виртуальный прыжок с трамплина Пуйо K120: современные компьютерные технологии и очки 3D дадут максимальное ощущение полета с трамплина. С раскрасневшимися на морозе щеками будет здорово прокатиться по чистейшей нетронутой финской природе на упряжке, запряженной настоящими сибирскими хаски. В стоимость катания входит также билет на посещение смотровой площадки на 75-м башне Пуйо, с которой открывается потрясающий вид на город и его окрестности. Проголодавшись после активного дня на улице, стоит заглянуть в ресторан на башне Пуйо или в ресторанчик Puijon Maja, расположенный совсем неподалеку от горки Snow Tube. Пока взрослые будут доедать десерт, дети успеют посетить в кафе на башне Пуйо «Тропинку живой природы», где с помощью технологии дополненной реальности они смогут познакомиться поближе с обитателями животного мира Пуйо. – На нижнем этаже башни расположен сувенирный магазин, где вы можете приобрести памятные подарки себе и друзьям. Дизайн магазина разработала фирма Jukolaind Oy, они же осуществили практический ремонт. По словам М. Комппула, интерьер выполнен из экологически чистой необработанной древесины, что полностью соответствует концепции Puijo Peak Oy. Башня Пуйо работает практически ежедневно, за исключением 24 и 25 декабря. Если после обеда у вас еще останется нерастраченная энергия, то можно отправиться на небольшую лыжную прогулку по заснеженному лесу или продолжить веселое катание на санках. – Обновленный Пуйо предлагает активный отдых на весь день как жителям и гостям города, так и организованным группам. Очень здорово, что наряду с традиционным семейным отдыхом у нас становится все больше и больше корпоративных запросов. Мы рады вас видеть всегда,- заканчивает М.Комппула.

Kuopio City Centre: Call to adventure! TEXT DIGIMAG/MAIJU KORHONEN PHOTO SHUTTERSTOCK

Kuopio City Centre is a coherent and functioning entirety, which is easy to get a hold of. ЦЕНТР ГОРОДА КУОПИО — НАСТОЯЩЕЕ ПРИКЛЮЧЕНИЕ!

THE TEMPERATE ACTIVITY CENTRE THE KUOPIO CITY Centre is one big living activity centre. The mar-

ketplace hosts the Grand Market, in addition to a whole slew of events of differing sizes, such as the winter season market fair and the Ice Sculpture Competition, the grand jewels of midwinter. The marketplace is surrounded by a melting system that keeps the main streets clear of snow for the most part.

THE ONLY MARKET WITH ITS OWN ORIGIN STORY The marketplace of Kuopio is the hub of the world – at least if you ask the residents of Kuopio. The 200-year-old marketplace is one of the busiest markets of Finland. It is also the only market known to have an origin story specifically written for it. The market is surrounded by five large malls, and the edge of the market houses the Kuopio Market Hall, accompanied by the Veljmies and Siskotyttö statues.

THE CITY CENTRE ON THREE LEVELS The Kuopio Market and Centre is built into three levels. You can find shelter from cold winter winds by going beneath the market through the Apaja Mall. Also beneath the market lies the three-story parking hall, where you can conveniently get to from Route 5. The entrances are on street Puijonkatu and exits on street Haapaniemenkatu. The parking hall beneath the market, Toriparkki, has on floor K1 three charging devices with two Type2 plugs each for charging hybrid and electric cars. Toriparkki also offers carwash services.

DIVERSE CULTURE SERVICES

ЦЕНТРАЛЬНЫЙ РАЙОН ГОРОДА ИМЕЕТ ЧЕТКОЕ ФУНКЦИОНАЛЬНОЕ ЗОНИРОВАНИЕ, КОТОРОЕ ДЕЛАЕТ ВОЗМОЖНОЙ БЫСТРУЮ И ИНТУИТИВНУЮ НАВИГАЦИЮ. МЕСТО ДЛЯ КРУПНЫХ МЕРОПРИЯТИЙ

В центре Куопио располагается рыночная площадь, которая является местом проведения мероприятий различных форматов. Зимой здесь, например, проходит крупная ярмарка Tammimarkkinat и выставка ледяных скульптур. Покрытие площади оснащено системой подогрева, которое защищает поверхность от снежного покрова.

УНИКАЛЬНАЯ ПЛОЩАДЬ С ИСТОРИЕЙ

Городская площадь – это одно из самых оживленных мест Финляндии. Ее история насчитывает более 200 лет. Также известно, что это единственная площадь Финляндии с собственной историей рождения. Площадь окружена пятью крупными торговыми центрами, а на ее краю расположен торговый павильон «Kuopion Kauppahalli». Фасады павильона украшены скульптурами.

ЦЕНТРАЛЬНАЯ ПЛОЩАДЬ НА ТРЕХ ЭТАЖАХ

Городская площадь расположена на трех этажах. Торговый центр Apaja находится прямо под площадью, куда не проникают холодные зимние ветры. Также под площадью расположена просторная трехуровневая автомобильная парковка, до которой можно легко добраться по шоссе №5. Въезд на парковку осуществляется с улицы Пуййонкату (Puijonkatu), а выезд на улицу Хаапаниеменкату (Haapaniemenkatu). На этаже K1 – имеется зарядка типа Type 2 для электрических и гибридных автомобилей. Парковочная станция оснащена автомойкой.

The City Centre has all the makings of a successful urban day, like innumerable shops, museums and artworks in addition to the Kuopio Music Centre and Kuopio City Theatre. Many well-kept parks and wonderful opportunities for sports in the forms of jogging routes and gyms offer activities for people enjoying outdoors. A couple of kilometres from the centre lies Puijo Tower, perhaps the best-known landmark of Kuopio, and the Matkus Mall is not far away.

КУЛЬТУРНЫЙ ЦЕНТР

More info on the City Centre: www.kuopiontori.fi/ www.mualimannapa.fi

Подробнее о городской площади:

В центре города вы найдете все необходимые удобства и услуги для проведения идеального дня: бесчисленное количество магазинов, музеи и выставки, а также Дом музыки и театр. Многочисленные парки и скверы, отличные спортивные сооружения ждут своих посетителей в любую погоду. Башня Пуййо, самая известная достопримечательность Куопио, находится всего в двух километрах от городской площади. Крупнейшая торговая площадка в Восточной Финляндии Matkus – на небольшом расстоянии.

EAT, DRINK & SLEEP

T

he Finnish food culture is based on the purity of nature and locally produced products. It’s rare how we get to gather berries and mushrooms straight out of the forest into our plates. Seasons can be clearly seen on the plates: in winter we eat a lot more root vegetables, whereas in the summer the table holds more fresh vegetables. Traditionally Northern Savonia has been an area that produces milk, beef and berries, which can be seen in the traditional foods of Kuopio. Surrounded by lakes the people of Kuopio area naturally eat a lot of fish. Many of the traditional meals of the area are steadily stewed in the oven. After all, our most important and famous baked food is the classic Finnish fish pasty baked into a rye crust. In Eastern Finland people also eat a lot of rye bread and traditional unleavened barley and oat breads. Rye bread is thick and sour. In Nothern Finland the unleavened barley and oat breads are thin, but in Northern Savonia the breads are round, thick and bulging, and also a little sour. Sausage on the other hand has been playfully named as the favourite vegetable of the Finns. Its annual consumption is a bit over 7 kilograms per person. And coffee – the saviour of the Finnish morning and the cornerstone of the day. Even workplaces hold specifically named coffee breaks. While other Nordics drink a lot of coffee as well (about 6 to 7 kilograms), Finns consume roasted coffee 10 kilograms per person annually. Be like a regular Kuopio resident and dive into the world of flavours we offer. We gathered easy tips for you to create a very Finnish snack. All products can be conveniently found in Päiväranta K-Citymarket that offers a wide selection of local and Finnish products.

How to use a

Finnish grocery store TEXT DIGIMAG/HETA JYRÄLÄ PHOTO KESKO, DIGIMAG/ MIRKA HAPPONEN

Usually the first thing you long for when arriving in a new city or resort is a supermarket that has everything you need.

W

for themselves on the shop’s shelves: for example, gluten free foods and milk free products have their own shelves. And the shop is also one of the world’s most responsible shops.

hether you’re on a casual city vacation in Kuopio or on a trip to Tahko tourist resort, get in your car and head to the Päiväranta mall. The mall is easy to access from the freeway from every direction. On a trip from the airport to Kuopio the mall is the last big shop before the centre. And when you’re on a city vacation and decide to head for Tahko, it is the last stop where you’ll find everything you need. After shopping you can handily get back on the freeway or jump on the next buss heading to the centre.

K-CITYMARKET HAS A fruit selection bountiful with the most delicious of fresh vegetables and fruits. Many vegetables, like carrots, have the regular orange version as well as a fun, more yellowish breed. Or the red-and-white striped beet. The regular beetroot also has trendier versions like red-and-white striped beet and golden beet. In Finland the fruit and vegetables are often weighed. So, gather the amount of a vegetable you’d like in a bag, weigh it by pushing the button numbered for the product on the scale and stick the printed sticker on the bag. The number for the vegetable is on the same place as its price. This way you’ll buy the exact amount of vegetables you’ll need.

THE BEST SUSHI in town can be found at Päiväranta K-Citymarket. The sushi on sale has been made an hour before purchase at the latest, guaranteeing its freshness. Gather a selection you’d like, weigh it and pay it on the counter! Same concept applies to the salad buffet. The shop has also a service counter with the most comprehensive selection of meats in the city, where you can find yourself some delicious meat and fish to cook. Remember to ask the staff for help and tips!

THE RECENTLY RENOVATED drinks department has a wide selection of both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. Have a taste of the local beers and long drinks! The local soft drinks and flavours are guaranteed to appeal to the kids, as well. The grocery shops are allowed by law to sell alcoholic beverages with no more than 5.5 percentage of alcohol in them. Wines and liqueurs stronger than the 5.5 % can be found on the Alko state monopoly. Remember, alcohol can only be bought from 09 to 21.

FINNISH PEOPLE LOVE loose candy. For many the gathering of a personal bag of goodies is a weekend tradition. All your favourite candy is gathered into the bag either by yourself or with your whole family. Loose candy shelf has an easy gateway to the heart of Finnish experience: just try some salt liquorice. Yum!

DID YOU REMEMBER your passport, but forgot your toothbrush? Don’t worry, in K-Citymarket you can easily find all daily consumer products and hygiene products you need. In addition, the info desk conveniently sells postcards and stamps so you can mail your folks at home.

THE PAINKILLERS YOU forgot can be found on the local pharmacy, where you can get your prescription medicine and other pharmacy products as well. You can keep the doctor, and the vacation flu, away by stocking your bathroom bag with all vitamins and zinc products necessary. In Finland all medicine, for example aspirin and creams, are only sold in pharmacies.

IT’S UNFORTUNATE IF you lose your credit card or if the banking services are down because of a technical malfunction during the winter holidays. That’s why it pays to have some cash at hand on holidays, so that you’ll at least get to eat. In addition, cash often makes shopping quicker. The orange Otto cashpoint machine can be found on the passageway of the mall. In Finland all of the more common credit cards, like Visa and MasterCard as well as Visa Electron, are applicable at most places.

IN FINLAND ALMOST all cans and bottles are sold with a 10-40 cent deposit. The money is returned when you return the bottle or can to a recycling automat. Recycling automats can be found in every grocery store and they are usually located in the hallway near the entry to the store. The bottles and cans are simply placed in the machine, which prints a receipt at the end. You can get your money at the counter with the receipt, or you can use the receipt to pay for some of your groceries.

IT’S MORE COMFORTABLE to carry on in a clean car. In Finland weather conditions can change a lot even in one week. The changing winter weather makes car wash a necessity now and again. In addition to carwash, you can refuel at any time of the day. The charging point for electric cars serves you conveniently during your shopping trip. And you’re back on the road!

hen one has seen and felt Tokyo and New York, one wants to get to know authentic Finnishness and Savonian experience. The authentic culture of the land can be discovered by diving into the middle of traditional Savonian dishes and getting to know where the origin of the food lies. The Kuopio area offers all this starting next summer, as Northern Savonia was chosen as the European Region of Gastronomy of 2020. ‒ The Judges were impressed by the purity of nature and its ingredients. We are able to go to our backyard and get pure wild herbs and berries straight out of nature, says the European Region of Gastronomy, also known as ERG, coordinator Henna Lehikoinen. EUROPEAN REGION of Gastronomy (ERG)

acknowledgement is first of its kind in Finland. It can be compared to the better-known European Capital of Culture award. ERG helps develop events, agriculture, education

One of the main themes of the celebratory year are the pure natural ingredients found in the Northern Savonia region, such as berries, mushrooms as well as game and fish. Next summer there are four foraging theme weeks, which may include planned berry or mushroom foraging excursions, picnics, cooking classes or workshops.

and entrepreneurship that circle around not only culture but gastronomy and food. The acknowledgment emphasises responsibility in activity, using local food and the cooperation between small to medium-sized companies. ‒ The celebrations of the year will include a lot of activities concerning food and culture. How would you like going fishing or gather mushrooms with the locals? The hosts will help and guide you with the mushroom gathering and afterwards they will be cooked for dinner, Lehikoinen explains. THERE ARE over 50 operators from different fields of activity in the network of ERG-partners. The network includes restaurant and cafeteria operators, primary producers, food producers, culture and creative arts companies as well as associations and event producers. The motley bunch is connected by the burning passion to create and offer to tourists everlasting experiences with food and pure nature in the Northern Savonia region.

Professional tips for the winter of Tahko TEXT DIGIMAG/HETA JYRÄLÄ PHOTO KUOPIO–TAHKO MARKETING, MINNA HIRVONEN

Exercise, adventure, relax and chill out alone or together – everything is possible at Tahko

T

The best of the season

he winter of Tahko is full of sights to see, experiences and activities. The tourist centre is a dream come true especially for the active and outdoors loving traveller. For first timers the possibilities might feel a bit extensive, but luckily the staff of the Tahko Spa Hotel, among others, are ready and capable to give out the best tips of winter. – The novelty of this winter is, among others, the nine-kilometre-long mountain bike route made by Tahko Safari. The route passes through the diverse terrain of Tahko, and is only meant to be traversed on fatbikes, says Minna Hirvonen of Tahko Spa Hotel. The bike can be rented from the hotel reception, Tahko Safari or other equipment rental services.

Outside

Downhill skiing. Tahko is Finland’s fourth largest ski resort with 24 slopes. Every skier can find a slope of suitable challenge for themselves. Cross-country skiing. On the lakes you can ski to the historic Aholansaari as well as Nilsiä. For a skier looking for a challenge a trip to the top of the mountain of Tahko is perfect. Biking. The new mountain bike route for fatbikes offers challenges and beautiful scenery.

Inside Bowling. Bowling is fun for the whole family, and bumpers walls can be deployed to help the smallest members of the families. Spa. The spa is a classic of the winter day! Swim for long periods or relax in the hot tub with bubbles. The children have their own pool too!

THE MOUNTAIN bike route is a great addition to the diverse pos-

sibilities for exercise. The amazing nature is the trump card of the area and a wonderful way to relax. Hirvonen herself gets pleasure and peace of mind from exercising outdoors. The favourites of the winter are especially downhill skiing and snowshoeing. – Snowshoes are great if you want to admire the beautiful Huutavanholma, have a coffee at the Pehkubaari slope restaurant, and climb to the observation tower built this fall and wonder at the wintery landscape. On a clear day you can see really far away from the top of the tower, Hirvonen reveals. You can rent the equipment for all activities on site, so new sports and activities are easy to try or come back to. Other services let you try out riding, shooting, fishing, a snowmobile safari and ice karting, just to name a few. – But you can just relax here too – lie down at the quality suite and read a book, Hirvonen laughs.

SuperCorner. An indoors activity park, where you can jump, bounce and play with the whole family. Adults are welcome to join the fun! Dinner. A good trip is crowned by good food. Restaurant Riemu has delicacies that will blow you away!

Relax Beauty treatments. There is always a good reason to pamper yourself and those close to you. On top of the classic facial treatments, manicures and pedicures you can choose from the most wonderful body treatments. Massage. It is good to have a regular massage. A traditional massagist takes away all your aches and pains. Après ski and nightlife. The winter of Tahko is filled with wonderful parties, widely known après skis and famous artists. Every weekend is eventful! TAHKO SPA HOTEL Keitaankatu 1, TAHKOVUORI Tel. +358 600 550 147 (0,8 €/min + pvm/mpm), sales@tahkospa.fi www.tahkospa.fi

The quality skin skis guarantee traction in every weather.

S

kiing is one of the most popular sports for Finns, as it is the third most popular sport right after walking and biking. Studies show that 800,000 to 1,000,000 Finns get on skis every winter, so the need for quality skis is huge. The great demand has also accelerated the development of skiing equipment. The evolution of skis begins with the legendary wooden skis, that were replaced in the 1970s with the plastic skis. Halfway through the 1980s saw the skiers familiarizing themselves with skate skis, which also generated a new way of skiing. After numerous different bases the newest development in skis are the innovative and revolutionary skin skis. ‒ The advantage of the new technology is the effortlessness brought about by the skins. It used to be that the customer going to a sports equipment store had to know how to choose from the numerous waxes for

their skis. Different traction waxes can be found endlessly. The skin technology replaces the need for any waxing with its own traction. So, you don’t need to ponder on which wax to apply to the base of your ski, because the skin has traction and works constantly, no matter what the weather is, says Asko Lahdelma from the Peltonen ski factory. THE FINNISH Ski and equipment manu-

facturer Peltonen produce skin skis from mohair imported from Switzerland. The material is also acquired from the wool of the caribou, among other places. Technology offers the skier a new and easier way to both use and maintain their skis, because the maintenance is taken care of in seconds. Skin skis have lowered the threshold for people to go out skiing, and it makes people more interested in skiing. The skin skis have revolutionized the mar-

ket for skis, because 75 percent of skis made by Peltonen are skin skis. – The skin skis have their own maintenance products, that keep the base clean and thus slicker, but they aren’t necessary. The maintenance and cleaning of the skis is really easy, Lahdelma says. – People ask us a lot about the durability of the skin skis. In high usage the skis hold for at least a thousand kilometres and at their best for as much as 3,000 kilometres. The durability of the skin is of course affected a lot by the elements they are used in. Rough and icy weather conditions naturally force more wear and tear on the skins. In normal circumstances and regular skiing, the factory promises the skis hold for 1,500 kilometres. Replacing the skin, however, is very cheap – we are talking about a few dozen euros here. The skins can be replaced in the sports equipment store or even at home, Lahdelma says. Peltonen has manufactured skis for the

SKIN SKIS CAN be conveniently

adjusted with the new MOVE adjuster of the Rottefell bindings even during a ski trip. You can add traction by moving the bindings forward, while moving the binding backwards makes the ski slide better.

ИЗВЕСТНЫЙ ФИНСКИЙ ПРОИЗВОДИТЕЛЬ лыж и спортивного снаряжения Peltonen изготавливает лыжи с материалом из мохера, который импортируется из Швейцарии. Покрытие также можно получить из шерсти карибу.

snows of Finland for over 75 years. Ski trade is also hot internationally. Half of the skis made by the company are exported to Sweden, Norway, Germany, France and Switzerland as well as the United States of America and Canada, among other countries. The great amount of sales has been positively affected not only by the skin ski technology, but also by the high quality of the skis and a good durability. The company’s long experience in manufacturing skis combined with the new technology has brought them a lot of positive feedback. – The skin skis are really pleasant to ski with, and customers let us hear it. User experiences have been past all of our expectations. The best marketing trick any product can have is functionality – when the product works as it should, the information is passed from mouth to mouth. Roughly 95 percent of the customers have been extremely satisfied with skin skis, Lahdelma reports.

При агрессивном использовании лыж, держащая вставка на скользящей поверхности прослужит минимум 1000 км, а в лучшем случае даже 3000км. Срок службы поверхности зависит от типа снега и других факторов. Грубый и обледенелый снег вызывает больше износа. При нормальных погодных условиях и базовом катании производитель дает гарантию на 1500 км. Далее покрытие можно легко и недорого заменить на новое. Peltonen изготавливает лыжи для финского снега уже более 75 лет. Торговля ведется и за пределами Финляндии. Половина производимой продукции компании экспортируется в такие страны, как Швеция, Норвегия, Германия, Франция и Швейцария, а также в США и Канаду. Продажи повысились после введения в производство инновационного материала держания. Также на продажу влияют долговечность и высокое качество лыж. Многолетний опыт компании в сочетании с современными технологиями, обеспечивают удержание лидерских позиций на рынке спортивного инвентаря, о чем свидетельствует большое количество положительных отзывов.

route network is open this year wider than ever before and the track maintenance equipment is being renewed. The availability for recreational equipment is being improved, as the citizens get the option of renting equipment electrically from their personal computer. – Our aim is that you can engage in summer activities, like biking, during winter as well. The wide tired fatbikes work wonderfully in a wintery terrain, says project worker Markus Sjöberg. In addition to outdoors exercise the city offers a lot of culture. The culture centre Poleeni lets the visitors enjoy numerous theatre performances, literature events, concerts, dance performances and stand up. – We also have a lot of free events, like lectures, webinars and community singing events,

explains Director of culture and leisure sector Päivi Majoinen. Poleeni cooperates with the regional community college of Pieksämäki and the Music college of Soisalo, guaranteeing that there is something for everyone. For example in April the singer known from Moomin Benny Törnroos plays with the little folk with Moomin characters, and for adults the theatre director Jari Tuononen recommends the fall foliage theatre and Aapelin maailma performance. – On Mayday I recommend the Drag ladies on stage concert performance, Tuononen says. In addition to Poleeni experiences can be found in abundance at the event venue Veturitori, where it is possible to host fairs, concerts, seminars, training- and exercise events as well as other sorts of events.
