First time in Finland
We will be driving from Goteborg to Stockholm and take the night ferry to Turku. From there we intend to visit Naantali and Tammissarri on our way to Helsinki. After a couple of days in Helsinki we want to drive to Savonlinna via Provo and Lappeenranta. We leave our car in Savonlinna and want to take boat ride to Kuopio. We stay overnight, enjoy the Sauna' visit the town and take public transport back to Savonlinna. We overnight in Savonlinna, pickup the car and head to Helsinki Harbor to take a Ferry to Kallinn. We need advise, comments on this trip plan and suggestions on accomodation and things to do and particularly about the boat trip and trip back to Savonlinna.
Thank you. Zeeman
RE: RE: First time in Finland
Thanks for the tip. How do I get see your page ? I just found out that June 17 to June 21 When I planned to be in Helsinki there is a heart conferrence in Helsiki and all hotels are booked. I am driving my car, could you suggest some small place just outside of Helsinki and yet connected by public transport.Any suggestions from any Fin experts will be appreciated. Zeeman
Travel Tips for Savonlinna
A cool house
This is a house we could see from the footbridge connecting Kasinosaari to the town centre. The morning of our departure, we decided to take the time to see it up close. From the footbridge, we took a left on Olavinkatu and another left on Kalmarinkatu. It was worth the small detour.
Savonlinna (around 29.000 inhabitants) is located in the South-Eastern part of Finland, just in the heart of the Saimaa-lake district (largest lake district in Europe). It is famous for its castle Olavinlinna and for the opera festival that takes place every summer inside the castle. Information about Savonlinna you might also find on the official Savonlinna homepage.
