  • Saimaa Canal Museum provides a comprehensive introduction to the Saimaa Canal construction through the centuries. The Museum is located in the 1800-century sluice-gate security guard in the building. The Museum operates in a nice coffee shop/Café. Particularly interesting in the context of the small Park Museum is doing it. The Park is built in the 1800 's by the Russian Tsar time gardeners. 1800-century Russian Czars and other princes did in the summer, the Lake Saimaa Canal for recreational trips up. Park one might conclude that the place is at least planned value for entertainers as a stopover. The place, where you can enjoy the summer!, and perhaps picnicistä. Now over one hundred years after the Park comes into its own, as the trees are fully grown. In the Park the route may be following in the footsteps of real Princesses and finding your way around the pad mielikuvituksessaan back in time. The Saimaa Canal Museum and the surroundings offers a beautiful summer day with a breath of centuries and mukanan a peaceful visit in Lappeenranta, Finland.

  • A place to visit. The old-channel environment circumvents the path leading to the old channel gates. There is also a scenic path around the museum. The stair height of Mälkiän is the largest in the canal, and the ship's sulutus is an interesting event when it happens to the socks at the time of the ship. Kekkonen Park is also right beside the feathers. Definitely worth a visit on our trip to Lappeenranta. The swings and the canal are best experienced by the Lappeenranta-Vyborg canal cruise. Recommend.
