The arrival of the first warm, summery days brings Kuopio’s harbour to life; a sunhungry,
buzzing crowd of people descends on the city’s largest terrace and favourite summer hangout,
Restaurant Wanha Satama (Old Harbour), for drinks,
fresh fish dishes and local treats – topped off by live entertainment.
Set in the Finnish Lakeland area and Northern Savonia region in central Finland, Savonia
Kuopio is a lively summer city that hosts a variety of events,
from wine to music festivals, accompanied by beautiful lake views.
The city received its official harbour for lake traffic in 1856,
together with a customs office building designed by Carl Albert Edelfelt.
Since 1992, the building has operated as a restaurant, Savonia
which today forms one of the city’s foremost entertainment hubs in the summer season.
“The restaurant attracts people because it’s set right by the lake, and on a sunny day,
we can see the train of people making their way here from a distance,”
says project manager Jorma Iivanainen.
“The old log building adds to the restaurant’s natural atmosphere, and we have plenty of entertainment on offer,
including jazz, blues, rock and dance music.”
One highlight of the summer is the LUMO music festival in June,
which takes place at Restaurant Wanha Satama.
