We began our long weekend on Wednesday with a quick stop in Kuopio. Kuopio is famous for its kauppahalli (market hall).
The building itself is quite possibly Kuopio's finest example of art deco/jugend architecture. Designed by architect Johan Victor Strömberg, the market hall began operating in 1902.
The market hall is home to about 30 different vendors offering meats, fish, baked goods, hand-made crafts, and of course, the most excellent and delicious kalakukko.
The Kuopio Market Hall homepage can be found here.
