The city of "Josuu", which was founded by the Czar Nicholas I of Russia in 1848, is the regional ctre and the capital of North Karelia. During the 19th ctury Josuu was a city of manufacture and commerce. Wh in 1860 the city received dispsation rights to initiate commerce, former restrictions against industry were removed and the local sawmills began to prosper and expand. Water trafc was improved by the building of the Saimaa Canal. Consequtly, a lively commerce betwe the regions of North Karelia, St.Petersburg and Ctral Europe was abled. At the d of the 19th ctury Josuu was one of the largest harbour cities in Finland.

Throughout the cturies Karelian traders have plied the Pielisjoki River. The river has always be the lively heart of the city. Canals – completed by 1870 – increased the river trafc. Thousands of steamboats, barges and logging boats sailed along the river during the gold age of river trafc. The Pielisjoki River has also be an important log raft route, providing wood for the sawmills and for the tire lumber industry.

During the last few decades, the formerly modest agrarian town has developed into a vital cter of the province. Success in regional annexations, the establishmt of the province of Karelia and investmts in education have be the most decisive actions in this developmt.

Municipality of Pielissuu was consolidated with Josuu in 1954. At the beginning of 2005, the municipalities of Kiihtelysvaara and Tuupovaara were consolidated with Josuu. At the beginning of 2009 the municipalities of Eno and Pyhäselkä were consolidated with Josuu. After the most rest consolidations, there are approximately 72,000 inhabitants in the Josuu municipal area.

The University of Josuu has, in twty-ve years, expanded to eight faculties. The University of Josuu is one of the mainstays for the vitality of the city and so for all North Karelia. Diversied international cooperation in scice, industry and commerce bets the whole region.

The proximity of the eastern border has be an important factor in the history of the city. The Republic of Karelia is once again a signicant area for cooperation with nearby regions in Russia. Export companies in Josuu continue the pre-revolutionary traditions in foreign trade. Josuu offers varied cultural activities. A series of evts – Ilosaarirock, Josuu Music Winter, Festival of Visual Culture Viscult, Gospel festivals – and the unspoilt vironmt increase the attractivess of the city.

Josuu is sometimes referred to as the "Forest Capital of Europe", mainly due to the fact that the European Forest Institute is based there. Other forestry research and educational facilities are also based in Josuu.
