Partner: Municipality of Puolanka

Partner description:

Small but tough
It is not for the municipality to look at the population as far as Puolanka is concerned.

Puolanka offers a lunch for a good, easy and safe everyday life. Services such as shops, a health center and a clean indoor school can be found in the immediate vicinity of the municipal centre. Leisure activities are taken care of by its rich offerings, such as the civic college and the environment, which is made for sports.

The tourist is captivated by the magical vultures of Kainuu and the hills that glow in blue. Not forgetting the unique natural attractions, such as the Hepoköngäs waterfall, which is one of the highest wild waterfalls in Finland.

In the summer, the population of the municipality doubles, when in addition to tourists, so-called part-time Puolanka citizens also come to their cottages to recharge their batteries and relax. And whatever is here, in the magical wilderness scenery of Kainuu, on the shores of clear water lakes.

Entrepreneurs are the cornerstone of the municipality, which the municipality aims to support with, among other things, developed infrastructure. The fiber-optic network covering the sparsely populated areas of Puolanka enables teleworking, but if necessary, the municipality also offers affordable retail space. The interests of entrepreneurs and the realization of the entrepreneurial spirit of the municipality are monitored by an active and innovative association of entrepreneurs.

All this can be found in the heart of mainland Finland, near the great hills of Puolanka. Puolanka, known for its open-minded attitude and courageous solutions - persevere on its own.
