On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lappeenranta: Ruokolahden Kirkko (in Ruokolahti), The Parikkala Sculpture Park (in Parikkala) and Imatra (Karelian Farmhouse Open Air Museum, Church of St. Nicholas, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Saimaa Canal, examine the collection at Lappeenranta Fortress, find something for the whole family at Angry Birds Activity Park, and revel in the low prices at ECCO Outlet.

Plan my Lappeenranta trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Moscow, Russia to Lappeenranta is an approximately 10.5-hour car ride. You can also fly. The time zone difference when traveling from Moscow to Lappeenranta is minus 1 hour.
