On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Nordic Congress of Ophthalmology (NOK) we would like to welcome you to Kuopio August 5th-8th, 2024. 

The congress will be held in Kuopio Music Centre which is one of Finland’s most significant concert and congress centres, the heart of musical life in the province. The Music Centre is impressive and has diverse facilities for arranging meetings, congresses and exhibitions.

Kuopio, the capital of Lakeland, is a located in the eastern part of Finland. It is the eighth-largest city in the country and the largest city in the North Savonia region. Kuopio is surrounded by the beautiful Lake Kallavesi.  Currently, Kuopio is one of the most wanted migration city in Finland.

The forests and Lake Kallavesi offer a variety of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed all year round. The Puijo Observation Tower is situated on the highest hill in the city, so the views from the tower of the surrounding environment are breathtaking. Puijo also provides the largest national urban park entity. 

It is easy to come Kuopio. You will get Kuopio from Helsinki in about an hour by aeroplane. Alternatively, you can travel by train. In that case, the journey time from Helsinki is 4-5 hours.

We look very much forward seeing you at NOK meeting in KUOPIO, 2024.

With kind regards,

Kai Kaarniranta, Saara Yli-Kyyny, Kati Kinnunen, Liisa Marttila ja Niko Kivinen
