In a year’s time when lights take the lion’s share of the festive decorations, Kuopio City Hall has just inaugurated its brand new dynamic façade lighting system based on GRIVEN’s LED floodlights. Built at the end of the 19th century, this Neo-renaissance building dominates, with its imposing but elegant structure, the central market place of Kuopio, the biggest city and most important cultural center in Eastern Finland. Like most Finnish provincial cities, Kuopio comes into its own in the summer when it plays host to a major dance festival, as well as to a lively wine fair. The typical Northern city’s essence, however, comes out in winter, when lights become crucial in the long coldest season of the year.
The market place of Kuopio is one of the liveliest in Finland. It is a traditional venue for encounters, sales and happenings, a crowded meeting place for the opening of summer season in May, an exciting stage for the annual Dance Festival’s free performances in June, a colourful, thriving source of fresh Finnish produce in summer and an evocative Christmas market site in December. Attracting thousands of people, different kinds of fairs are traditionally held from January to October, and popular flea market events are held in spring, summer and fall within the frame of this beautiful square.
