Kuopio is a nice and friendly city located in the Eastern area of Finland. It shows a beautifull nature scene with forests and lakes all year around. Kuopio is a city and a municipality located in the region of Northern Savonia, Finland. A population of 97,552 makes Kuopio the 9th biggest city in Finland today. And it continues to grow. It also has a University with lots of students from all over the World.
Kuopio is a place for people who like to travel to small cities. The winters are very cold and summers usually warm. No matter which season you're always close to nature, seaside and lots of lakes and forests around. For me, I very much like the solitude of this city.
+ If visiting in winter there's lot of out door activites such as skiing or skating. Hiking possibiltes all year around.
+ Kuopio is surrounded by lakes so there are great many opportunites to find a recluse place with not so many tourists/locals. Bathing in summer is wonderful!
+ City centre "keskus" doesn't give that many oppurtunites for shopping, but there are several bigger stores some kilometers off its beaten path.
+ Kuopio is small but there are according to me who has visited it numerous times plenty of opportunites in coosing a couisine for your own taste.
+ I also recommend the Museum of Culture and Natural History, which has a central location.
