Our destinations give you a deeper understanding of the local culture, traditions and customs. One of the most interesting destinations in Kuhmo must be Juminkeko, which celebrates the cultural traditions of Kalevala, the Finnish national epoch. Kuhmo Arts Centre is a world-famous concert hall.
In Suomussalmi, we recommend that you pay a visit to the art installation the Silent People, Viena Karelian villages of Kuivajärvi and Hietajärvi, as well as the author Ilmari Kianto's bohemian home, Turjanlinna. Friends of the theatrical arts should not miss seeing a show at Teatteri Retikka. Concerts and short-term exhibitions are organised throughout the year.
