Kuzino is an urban-type settlement (urban locality) under administrative jurisdiction of the town of Veliky Ustyug, Vologda Oblast, Russia. It is situated on the right bank of Northern Dvina River at the confluence of Sukhona and Yug Rivers, opposite to Veliky Ustyug, and municipally incorporated as Kuzino Urban Settlement, among the three urban settlements found in Velikoustyugsky Municipal District. Kuzino has a population of around 1,130 people (2010 census).

In the 1920s, Kuzino was part of the Shemogodsky Selsoviet of Velikoustyugsky District, Northern Dvina Governorate. During the 1930s, it grew up thanks to the construction of mechanical works, and nearby Yesiplevo village was merged into Kuzino, which in 1938 was granted the status of urban-type settlement.

In the past, Kuzino's major industrial enterprise was the mechanical works that stopped operation and went bankrupt in 2000s. Currently, the survived buildings are used as a shipyard for boat repair and timber production. Most of the inhabitants are employed in Veliky Ustyug and daily commute there.

Kuzino is connected with Veliky Ustyug via a passenger ferry. In winter, its rivers freeze, and trucks and cars cross Northern Dvina over ice. In spring and autumn, there is no crossing available to Veliky Ustyug as the ice sets up or melts. Sukhona, Yug, and Northern Dvina are navigable, but there no passenger navigation exists except for ferry crossings.

Unpaved road links Kuzino with Luza, Kirov Oblast and goes on to Lalsk and further to Komi Republic.
