When people are looking for food travel destinations, Finland is often not the first one on their list. Finland and especially Kuopio certainly deserve more attention in this field: the Kuopio region has been awarded as the European Gastronomical Region in 2020. Kuopio is also known for a quickly developing food scene and food festivals focusing on local ingredients.

 

We love eating out and love discovering new restaurants and coffee shops in our hometown. Being  a small(ish) town, Kuopio has a good selection of good quality restaurants and coffee shops.

 

Kuopio is a city many international students are not familiar with before their arrival.

 

Kuopio is certainly not as famous as Paris and London, and not as known as Helsinki and Rovaniemi are. Kuopio is however a little hidden gem, and what we have heard from international students studying in Kuopio, everyone is enjoying their time here. Of course life abroad never comes without challenges, but overall Erasmus students seem happy with their life. The biggest challenges are generally related to the darkness in the winter and the always changing Finnish weather.

 

Finland is famous for its changing seasons. Summers are full of light and winters, on the other hand, are the darkest of the dark.
