On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland.
Family-friendly places like Sandcastle Lappeenranta and Saimaa Canal will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Imatra (Church of St. Nicholas, Tainionkosken Church, &more), Ruokolahden Kirkko (in Ruokolahti) and Rautjarven kirkko (in Simpele). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Lappeenranta Fortress, admire the landmark architecture of Lappeen Marian kirkko, see human ingenuity at work at Imatrankoski, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Joutsenon kirkko.

To find photos, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Lappeenranta holiday maker site.

Helsinki to Lappeenranta is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. August in Lappeenranta sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 13°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can go by car back home.
