Unfortunately this is not yet the reason to visit Joensuu this summer 2018. When ready there should be better public facilities (toilets) and a new bandstand. Plus all the old charm and delicatessen.

An interesting market in the large square with all manner of goods and food on display and on offer. We availed ourselves of ice cream after our meal elsewhere and enjoyed watching the beehive of activity.

Nice lively market square with lots of lovely local produce and of course the Marttakahvila with freshly made Karelian pastries. Well worth a visit, but of course at its best when the weather is fine.
