On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland.
Visit Lammassaari Island and Lehman for some beach relaxation. Visit Stromforsin ruukki and Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum for their historical value.

There's still lots to do: hike along Santalahti Nature Trail, pause for some serene contemplation at Joutsenon kirkko, admire the sheer force of Imatra Waterfall, and step into the grandiose world of Sandcastle Lappeenranta.
