"Dont miss he market!" Kuopio Shopping Tip by lotharlerch

Kuopio Shopping: 12 reviews and 11 photos


You should not miss the colourful market right in the center.

What to buy: If you are very hungry you should look for the famous kalakukko - the translation is fish-cock. It has nothing to do with any sorts of cock (I hope The Censor does not read this page - and the four-letter-words-filter is not activated) but is a dark rye bread filled with fish and bacon - a veritable calory bomb, and it is eaten warm. You need quite some beer to it - even better would be vodka but this is prohibitively expensive in Finland ...
