Mikkeli is a lively town with most beautiful lake scenery, combination of interesting history and traditions, active business, high education and research, culture, nature and internationality. Mikkeli has approximately 50 000 inhabitants and there are over 6000 students studying in the city.
Mikkeli is located in Eastern Finland in an area with many lakes and forests. The town is located not so far away from the metropolitan area, so one can easily get there by bus or train. Mikkeli has an interesting history since the town served as the headquarters of the Finnish army during three wars. That is why you can see ‘Headquarters’ mentioned in many places.
Mikkeli is a lively town not only in summer but also in winter. During the last winters we have enjoyed beautiful ice sculptures as part of international ice festival arranged in the centre of town.
In addition to different festivals, you can enjoy various happenings throughout the year, the world-famous Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra being a good example.
