  • Nice explanation about how the canal and locks system works.
  • Käynninarvoinen paikka. Vanhankanavan ympäristöä kiertää polku, joka johtaa vanhoille kanavaporteille. Myös maisemapolku kiertää museon läheisyydessä. Mälkiän porraskorkeus on kanavan suluista suurin ja laivan sulutus on mielenkiintoinen tapahtuma, kun sattuu suluille laivan tulon aikaan. Kekkosen puisto myös on aivan sulkujen vierellä. Kannattaa käydä ehdottomasti Lappeenrannan matkallaan. Sulutukset ja kanavan kokee parhaiten Lappeenranta-Viipuri kanavaristeilyllä. Suosittelen.
