Joensuu is a city in North Karelia in the province of Eastern Finland. Like many cities around the area, Eastern Finland’s local language is almost totally monolingual Finnish. The city itself was founded in 1848 by the Russian Tsar Nicholas I. During much of the 19th century, the city of Joensuu was a thriving commercial city and had a large manufacturing base which eventually becomes one of the largest port cities in Finland. These days, Joensuu is a city of students from the University of Eastern Finland. Joensuu is a great place to visit because of the things to do for people who enjoy the outdoors and for people who would rather spend some time in a nice restaurant or museum. The local Taidemuseum has works of art whereas the North Karelian Museum has exhibits featuring local Karelian History. For those who want to be surrounded by nature; head over to Koli national park with its spectacular lookout points and quartzite cliffs. Read on for Airbnb vacation rentals in Joensuu, Finland.
