Lappeenranta

— 18 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 Kummakivi Boulder will get you outdoors. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lappeen Marian kirkko and Wolkoff House Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Lappeenranta: Ylamaa Gem Society (in Ylamaa), Parikkala (Parikkalan kirkko, Siikalahti Wetland, &more) and Rautjarven kirkko (in Simpele). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Lappeenrannan taidemuseo, examine the collection at Saimaa Kanal Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Sammonlahden Church, and get engrossed in the history at South Karelia Museum.
