    One of the closest to the Castle

    by

    Pick this one, if you don't want to spend your time with walking to Opera or the Market square, this is just between, only some hundreds of meters from both. The rooms are small but lovely (all the rooms are different, so there are bigger ones also), there is a sauna (if you are lucky you can meet some opera star there, I met once a Big Finnish Bass :)

    All rooms have TV, free wireless net, shower, toilet and hair dryer.

    If you can afford take a room with balcony (145€ off peak). Check the prices from their web pages (of peak 88-145, during summer and Opera time more). Extra bed and pets are charged according to price list and there're pet friendly rooms also.

    Peak time (from 5th Jul to 3rd Aug) prices on the 2013 season 130€ - 215€ and off peak as said earlier.

    (Closed from 22.12.12 -> 2.5.2013)

    By the way, the hotel is designed by architect Wiivi Lön, very famous here in Tampere, she designed for example our main fire station (and lot of others around Finland and Tampere). This hotel was build to NNKY (YWCA) year 1930.

    Unique Quality: During opera time the dinner is served 3,5 hours before opera time and there is light night bufee after. Opera time varies, but it's normally 19:00-22:15 (7:00PM to 10:15PM).

    Only cons is that there is four floors but no elevator.

    There used to be possibility to have breakfast in the boat, but that seems to be history now, what a pity, but there are terace and garden restaurant during summer time.

    Family run hotel with excellent location

    by

    Ah, once again I did not stay in this hotel but as I spotted it right next to a smallish beach, Olavinlinna Castle and within a walking distance of the city center... I thought that this would be my choice if I'd need one!

    Unique Quality: This family run hotel is perfectly located next to a nice smallish beach, just 50 metres to the shore! It is in between Olavinlinna Castle and Central Market place. They have only 21 rooms, a summer terrace where beer, cider and other drinks are served. The house itself is a beautiful typical Finnish wooden house.

    Check out their webpages as all the info is there...ah, by the way, the room prices varies, during the Opera Festival price are higher. A double room from 75 euros to 145 euros.

    Directions: next to the Olavinlinna Castle

Travel Tips for Savonlinna

Savonlinna

by ZenLady34

"One day trip to Savonlinna"

Savonlinna is a smallish town in East-Finland district, in the heart of Lake Saimaa district. Savonlinna has 28.000 inhabitants and the town is perhaps best known of its castle, the Olavinlinna Castle and the yearly Opera festivals. But it is far more than that. Again, like in Mikkeli, the best thing in my opinion of this town is its location: in the heart of Lake Saimaa area.

Savonlinna is easily reached destination. An express train journey from Helsinki to Savonlinna takes less than 5 hours, whereas a flight from Helsinki takes between 40-50 minutes. The distance from Helsinki by road is 335 km's.

Savonlinna is perhaps the most known of the Olavinlinna Castle founded in 1475. Today the castle serves Opera Festivals held every year in July. Which means that it is hard to find an accommodation during the Festival time, unless you have booked well in advance.

On the other hand, Savonlinna offers quite original accommodation for travellers at least summer time (Jun-Aug). One can f ex sleep in a day cruise boat or in a cosy family run hotel.

"Local food..."

We made a day trip to Savonlinna from Mikkeli by car. Enjoyed a nice summer day by the central market and kept my eyes open for fellow travellers. Savonlinna and its archipelago can be explored by car, taking a boat sightseeing or a sighseeing made by tiny airplane. (I'll add some links with better time...)

With some better time I will also try to share a very beautiful lake sightseeing route. But to do this you will have to have a car...
ah, also you need to taste the traditional LÖRTSY, which are sold at the market place.. It is a deep-fried pasty with minced meat and rice filling. There are salty ones with the minced meat and rice but also sweet ones with f ex apple jam.
Do not forget to taste the local delicate "smoked MUIKKU" (vendace)... njam! That can also be bought from the market place or ordered in a local restaurant, I guess. Our friends made some smoked MUIKKU's at their backyard when we had BBQ's at the evening.

If you are really going wild, try KALAKUKKO. Traditionally, Kalakukko is prepared with rye flour. The filling consists of fish, pork and bacon, and is flavoured with salt. After being baked for several hours, kalakukko looks much like a large loaf of rye bread. Traditionally the fish used in kalakukko is the vendace (Finnish muikku), also salmon and perch are also used. It can be eaten cold or warm (put it/a slice in microwave owen and heat it). I would drink milk with it.

As in anywhere in Eastern Finland the people are very friendly and easy going. I will definately go there again as one day trip was not enough! There are many cruises that leaves from Savonlinna, also one can take a sightseeing in the archipelago by boat or even by airplane.

"This Page Is Under Construction"

Savonlinna turned out to be an interesting experience, because I couldn't not find a good place to stay I met three other travellers (all of them from different countries) to join me to go to Sulkava. The four of us walked to the busticket to find out the bustime and then took of to see the famous castle in Savonlinna.
