    Botanical gardens with butterflies, a parrot, reptiles. Different greenhouses with different climate and plants. Well presented with information boards. You feel like you are in the jungle with butterflies flapping around you.
    Outside, a large garden, with sensory garden and stage for music performances.
    Great cafe and you can enjoy your locally produced ice cream amongs the plants.
    Light shows, live music, check the schedule on-line.

    This is one stand-out feature in Joensuu...
    ... then again, Joensuu hasn't got many of those! ;-P

    Clearly recognizing this, the male fox of old has now got a companion piece a few bences away - a female fox.

    beautiful forest, we didn't have very much time on our busy itinerary to properly appreciate the peace and tranquillity here. Hope to come again to fully explore.

    North Karelian museum Hilma is located in the centre of Joensuu, in an old bank building next to the market square. The museum's permanent exhibition displays the prehistory and the history of Karelia and North Karelia. There are also several temporary exhibitions each year concentrating on various themes, such as local culture and history.

    The church is small, but with an interesting iconostasi. On the first line of saints pictures, on the extreme left, there is the imagine of Alexander Nevskij. Proclaimed saint also because he won the Teutonic Knights in the Masuri Lakes battle. The location of the church in the city plan is at the extreme point of one road at the opposite point in relation to the Protestant church. Good luck for finding it open when you go for visiting.

    One of the oldest and best organized music festivals in Finland.
    Various genres of music are present on the many stages, the general mood is good and it's almost always sunny during the festival!
