Lappeenranta

— 14 nights

Town of Lindens

On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland.
Visiting Saimaa Canal and Lempukka Beach will get you outdoors. Visit Sandcastle Lappeenranta and Church of the Intercession of the Mother of God for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Lappeenranta side-trips: Imatra (De tre korsens kyrka, Detachment Kuhlmey, &more), Parikkala (Parikkalan kirkko, Siikalahti Wetland, &more) and Ruokolahti (Ruokolahden Kellotapuli, Ruokolahden Kirkko, &more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Lappeenranta Fortress, pause for some serene contemplation at Lemin kirkko, admire the sheer force of Imatra Waterfall, and find something for the whole family at Angry Birds Activity Park.
