Savonlinna is a town and municipality located in the south east of Finland, some four hours’ drive northeast of the Finnish capital Helsinki. Its place on the shores of Lake Saimaa brings many visitors to its waters for boat trips, while the series of interconnecting islands which make up the town are best accessed by hiring a car from Savonlinna Airport. Olavinlinna is a stunning medieval castle built more than 500 years ago and contains two museums where visitors can discover the thrilling history of the region.
There is some fascinating history to get a taste of here, and the first stop must be Olavinlinna Castle; a castle that played a crucial war during numerous wars throughout Finland’s history. Savonlinna Provincial Museum is another very popular tourist attraction here and you can learn all about the history of sailing and the role it played in Finnish history.
