Kuopio’s nightlife is conveniently strung along Kauppakatu, running east from the market square to the harbour. Look out for traditional liqueurs, such as cloudberry, from 1852-founded local company Lignell & Piispanen.

Luscious Liqueurs

One of Kuopio’s signature companies is Lignell & Piispanen, a traditional liqueur maker that has been in business for 230 years. Try some while you’re here; its cloudberry (lakka) drink is a classic, but the newer strawberry-flavoured Pople has conquered a younger crowd.
