On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland.
Step off the beaten path and head to Siikalahti Wetland and Wolkoff House Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Lappeenranta side-trips: Lietvesi Scenic Road (in Puumala), Kummakivi Boulder (in Ruokolahti) and Salpa Line Museum (in Miehikkala). There's lots more to do: take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, pause for some serene contemplation at Taipalsaaren kirkko, and step into the grandiose world of Sandcastle Lappeenranta.

To find reviews, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Lappeenranta trip site.
