Pedestrian Network

Unique to Kuopio, Rännikatu is a street half the width of normal, reserved solely for pedestrians and bicyclists. The city center can be safely crossed without having to travel among cars. In effect every other street in the grid system is a “safe street”. Besides this, there is ongoing renovation which will turn every street adjacent to the Market Place car-free.
