Welcome to Kiuruvesi!

Finland’s Capital of the Sustainable Development

Kiuruvesi is a lively countryside town located in eastern Finland in the county called Pohjois-Savo. Surrounded by unspoiled nature and committed to sustainable development it is proud to call itself ”Finland’s Capital of the Sustainable Development”. Notwithstanding its tranquil location, it is also by the side of convenient transport connections.

Foundation of the local authority dates back to 1873, when the community of farmers in the area had grown big enough to form an independent municipality. Skylark was chosen to become the heraldic animal of the municipality. Milk was the main product a century ago, and it is still the cornerstone of the local economy. Indeed, Kiuruvesi still today is one of the biggest producers of milk and beef in Finland. Nevertheless it is not only agriculture we live on. The other main fields of industry are forestry and metal.
