Savonlinna ©
The picturesque town of Savonlinna sits on two islands surrounded by shimmering lakes and lush greenery.
On the 27th (Mon), appreciate the history behind Savonlinna Herostatue - The Hero's Grave, step into the grandiose world of Savonlinna Cathedral, stop by Taito Shop Savonlinna, don't miss a visit to Pikkukirkko, then pause for some photo ops at Olavinlinnan Musta Passi, and finally pause for some photo ops at The Spirit of the fortress.

Plan my Savonlinna trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Madrid, Spain to Savonlinna is an approximately 17-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Madrid to Savonlinna. Traveling from Madrid in August, expect nights in Savonlinna to be slightly colder, around 13°C, while days are cooler, around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to drive to Kuopio.
