The unique junior suite in the Jugend building has been designed by Jorma Uotinen, the charismatic artistic director of the Kuopio Dance Festival.
For almost 20 years, Jorma has during his visits in Kuopio been our guest in room 357. This corner suite is like a home to Jorma because you can find all his favourite elements in there: wide windowsills, rooms with high ceilings and a view over the Snellman Park.
Jorma has designed a classy suite in his favourite colours pure white, red and black. To quote the artist himself: "Not bad! Streamlined gliding and unexaggerated elegance!"
According to Jorma the best things in Puikkari are the staff and the well braised morning porridge. You can hear Jorma's greetings on our Poikki Puikkarin video here.
This year the Kuopio Dance Festival celebrates its 51 year old story 10.-16.6.2020. The largest and most versatile annual international dance art festival in the Nordic countries will launch its second half-century under the stewardship of a new Artistic Director, Riku Lehtopolku.
