No worries, the mosquitoes don't like a city environment. And the mild breeze of the Kallavesi lake makes an obstacle for mosquitoes.

Then Kuopio must be a heaven compared with the surrounding areas...I know that inner Finland (and especially Lapland), with all that water, is the home of the mosquitoes in summer!

Where the soil is moist and there's a lack of asphalt, mosquitoes thrive. It's not Kuopio, it's all Finnish cities. Cities are all free of mosquitoes, but go towards the countryside, you'll encounter them. The more rural, the more there is.

Well, it's an A-, but winters are definetely too warm... And it's far from being the best scandinavian climate.... Even if it receives more precipitation than other places, I doubt that it receives more snowfall or has a higher snow depth.

And I agree with Ariete... There can be hordes of mosquitoes in Lappland's summers, but even in smaller cities there are actually very few... little villages are full of them though.
