Savonlinna

— 7 nights
The picturesque town of Savonlinna sits on two islands surrounded by shimmering lakes and lush greenery.
Get some cultural insight at Olavinlinna Castle and Kerimaki Church. Take a break from the city and head to Linnansaari National Park and Punkaharju Ridge. Change things up with these side-trips from Savonlinna: Parikkala (Siikalahti Wetland & The Parikkala Sculpture Park), Kummakivi Boulder (in Ruokolahti) and Mikkeli (Headquarters Museum, Mikkeli Cathedral, &more). Spend the 20th (Fri) exploring nature at Kolovesi National Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pikkukirkko, see the interesting displays at Lusto - The Finnish Forest Museum, explore the historical opulence of Savonlinna Cathedral, and pause for some photo ops at Olavinlinnan Musta Passi.
