Casual and relaxed Kuopio is gaining popularity
Kuopio has 112,000 residents and the city is quickly growing in popularity among Finns. In 2016, it was the fourth most popular city to live in when Finns’ willingness to move was measured. The popularity is due to Kuopio’s child-friendliness and enjoyable living areas. Let’s also not forget the particularly good employment situation, which Kuopio can be especially proud of. Kuopio also has an extensive selection of study places. For example, the Kuopio campus of Savonia University of Applied Sciences has 11,500 degree students. In addition, Kuopio allows you to enjoy the beauty of nature and a variety of services simultaneously, as the city is built on the shores of Lake Kallavesi.
Kuopio also offers its residents an excellent opportunity to enjoy arts and culture. Kuopio is often referred to as a dancing city due to the annual Kuopio Dance Festival. In addition, Kuopio offers plenty of possibilities for winter sports. The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup is organized in the early spring in the Puijo hills, Tahko ski resort is just a stone’s throw away, and we should not forget the thrilling ice hockey matches that Kuopio’s very own KalPa offers.
