Life in the Kuopio region

Lying in the heart of Eastern Finland, Kuopio is a growing urban center, and home to over 100,000 inhabitants. The region is known for its outstanding lake scenery, which provides a pleasant living environment and excellent opportunities for leisure activity. Kuopio has been praised as an excellent place to live for families with children.

Over a thousand high-quality apartments are rented out by Kiinteistö-KYS, the housing company for the Kuopio University Hospital District and the City of Kuopio. These are primarily for the staff of Kuopio University Hospital and  employees of the municipality.

The extensive leisure opportunities available to Kuopio University Hospital staff will help you find plenty to do in your time off. In the unlikely event of not finding something suitable, you can always start a group of your own.
