Cross-border food trip: filming video
In the end of October, the film crew of the Production Center «Fabrika grez» (Dream Factory) visited Joensuu to finish a promo-video about the Karelian cross-border food trip. The filming took place in the cafe of the art quarter «Taitokortteli» that in the recent years has become the center of the cultural and craft life of the city. The smell of coffee, Finnish pastries and the pleasant atmosphere of the wooden houses attract residents and visitors all year round.
Then the group went to the «Teatteriravintola» (Theater Restaurant), located in a 1914 building built by Eliel Saarinen. The restaurant uses unique ingredients from the North Karelia region.
The next day the group received a warm welcome at «Pajarinhovi» (Kitee) that is a great place for family vacations as well as for relax with a company of friends. The territory where the tourist complex is located is surrounded by the legends. Here you can taste Finnish and European meals. The video will be shown in Helsinki at the Matka Nordic Travel Fair (15-19 January, 2020)
