Savonlinna

The picturesque town of Savonlinna sits on two islands surrounded by shimmering lakes and lush greenery. A popular tourist destination, the town draws visitors to its world-famous opera festival, as well as its well-preserved and attractive medieval castle--one of the most impressive in all of northern Europe. Although a compact city, Savonlinna's museums, galleries, shops, market, and bustling restaurants provide plenty of activities year-round, while the shores of the city's lakes are ideal spots to relax in the summer. Be sure to sample some eastern Finnish delicacies here, such as meat pies and fresh water herring. Savonlinna is in Southern Savonia.
