See and experience

Events, sights experiences. Joensuu offers the visitor all this – topped off by the joys of Karelia. Joensuu is a lively and growing urban hub. The city's summer feeling is fashioned by the Karelian lifestyle, the diverse services of the city centre and the many possibilities provided by the River Pielisjoki flowing through it.

Noteworthy venues include the Carelicum Cultural and Tourist Centre, the stunning Joensuu Art Museum, the Artisans' Quarter harkening back to an earlier day, the Botania Event Garden and the Market Square – the heart of the city. There are also endless possibilities to explore nature as well as hike and fish.
