  • 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.
