Kuopio is in Eastern Finland.
Kuopio is one of the many Finnish towns founded under Swedish rule. The town was established as a village in the 1500s and incorporated as a City in 1782. Kuopio is surrounded by lakes from three sides, which supplies loads of beaches and the feeling of water being always close. Part of the wooden houses arranged as a grid have been preserved in the centre which makes it a nice place to visit.
Kuopio bus network covers almost the whole city. The center of the city is Keskus. Buses generally go in two directions from Keskus, so look that you take the right bus to the right direction!

The local specialty kalakukko, a type of rye bread pie stuffed with fish (the name literally means "fish rooster"), is available from the Main Square outdoor market and in several food shops. You should also try fried vendace (muikku, a fresh-water fish) at local restaurants.
The well-known Kukkonen Bakery, in operation since the 1920s, has been closed in May 2005.
