“So similar and so different: Pieksämäki & Varkaus”. Now we are going to talk about two different and at the same time very similar towns, Pieksämäki and Varkaus. It is quite easy to find them on a map if you find Mikkeli first. From Mikkeli you can choose which town to visit first. If you want to go to Kuopio or Joensuu, you are definitely going to pass Varkaus, because it is right on a “crossroads” of both ways. Besides, if you travel by bus, all drivers change on that bus station which is also a railroad station. On your way to Varkaus you are about to pass by Juva, a small but important town, through which you have to drive if you are headed to Savonlinna.
