On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland. It sits just 30 km (19 mi) from the Russian border, a fact that has played an important role in this compact city's culture and 360-year history. Many consider Lappeenranta to represent a meeting and blending of eastern and western cultures. The city's historic fortress, 18th-century Orthodox church, several high-quality museums, and picturesque harbor are all big draws that have contributed to Lappeenranta's status as Finland’s second most visited city. Our Finland trip planning tool allows you to plan your trip to Lappeenranta and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
