For New Residents

Selected as the Capital of Play, Kuopio is a dream city for families with children. The high-quality, versatile early childhood education and care services and the clean, safe and comfortable growth environment provide an excellent setting for the early years of life. Neighbourhoods located next to forests and waterways provide wonderful options for living close to nature, just around the corner from the heart of the city. The versatile range of housing options, including 60 000 homes, make it easy to find your ideal home, because the housing production matches the demand very well. In addition, statistics show that the likelihood of finding a home with view overlooking a lake is quite high, because Kuopio is estimated to have 40 metres of shoreline per resident
