The picturesque town of Savonlinna sits on two islands surrounded by shimmering lakes and lush greenery.
Get outdoors at Linnansaari National Park and Lempukka Beach. Olavinlinna Castle and Savonlinna Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Savonlinna: Ruokolahti (Ruokolahden Kirkko, Kummakivi Boulder, &more), Varkaus (Varkauden Museot, Varkaus Water Tower Terrace, &more) and Leppavirta (Leppavirta Church & Orinoro Gorge). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Kirkkoniemen Kellotapuli, brush up on your military savvy at Communications Centre Lokki, explore the historical opulence of Sandcastle Lappeenranta, and don't miss a visit to The Astuvansalmi rock paintings.
