<b>Joensuu in English is 'Joe's mouth' :)</b>

Joensuu is the main town of northern Carelia and it is situated by Lake Pyhäselkä, at the estuary of the Pielisjoki river. Joensuu market has Carelian atmosphere and tastes. You can enjoy the beauty of the summer on the water, and in winter it is possible
to go straight from the centre into the nature - on skis, motor sleighs or snow boot safaris.

I have cousins in Joensuu too.. :) So this is another place in Finland I visit quite often. I would probably go there even more often but the 500 kilometres between Helsinki and Joensuu are too much for every month visits. Our summer cottage is only (?) 100 kilometers from Joensuu so I usually visit there in summer time.
