Kuhmo is a city of 9000 inhabitants on the Eastern border of Kainuu. The wild nature attracts tourists interested in enjoying peaceful nature. Juminkeko Foundation in Kuhmo serves as the national information centre for the Kalevala and as a channel for cultural exchange between Finland and the Karelian Republic. You'll also find something a bit unexpected from Kuhmo - a world class chamber music festival arranged since 1970!

Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival

For two frenetic weeks in July, Kuhmo in Eastern Finland is host to a chamber music festival attracting thousands of music lovers. In that fortnight, this town of 9,000 inhabitants echoes to the sound of music against a backcloth of a lake that almost laps the walls of the concert halls in the clear, unbelievable northern light.
