    Spa, hotel and summer hotel

    by

    This hotel contains Spa, hotel and a separate summer hotel. The summer hotel is for students most of the year, so if you remember your room from those days, you know what to wait here. The summer hotel is called Vuorilinna.

    I think that here in Savonlinna you only need the hotel for resting some hours during the night. That's why these are enough but I can't speak about satisfaction. If you have money enough, if you are early (if you travel July) take you room from the normal Hotel.

    So, you have to be careful when reading reviews from this hotel, the service and quality is different from spa to the summer hotels.

    Unique Quality: Location, location and location, just can't be better.

    There are not air conditioning in the summer hotel rooms (you might face such weather in Finland also, that you need it, at least in July-August). Most hotel room TVs are 47'' and no TV in summer side.

    Terrace and breakfast are top ones here.

Travel Tips for Savonlinna

Savonlinna Opera Festival

by brazwhazz

Every year in July since 1912, Savonlinna plays host to what has become the world-renowned Savonlinna Opera Festival. The festival, which lasts a month, attracts huge crowds, and tickets can be quite expensive. I don't like opera, but to give you an idea of the festival's popularity, the 2006 show featuring former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen was sold out over 7 months in advance.

What makes the festival so special is its location: medieval Olavinlinna Castle (see my Things to Do section for more details) provides a dramatic backdrop to the opera shows.

Even if you are not interested in opera, it is wise to know about the Opera Festival because you will have to book your accommodations well in advance if you plan on going to Savonlinna in July.

The Savonlinna Opera Festival office is located at Olavinkatu 27. Tickets can be purchased through Lippupalvelu at +358 600 10 800 or +358 600 10 020.

Note to self: Go back to Savonlinna

"Just whizzing through"

Because we had stayed longer than expected in Tallinn, Estonia, we ended up staying only one night in Savonlinna. This is where we spent our first night in Finland: in the morning, we left Tallinn by ferry and then took a bus from Helsinki.

We arrived in Savonlinna early in the evening with the knowledge that we had to be in Kuopio (some 2½ hours away) the following day. We tried to take in as much of the town as we could, but we could have stayed much longer, not so much because there is much to do in Savonlinna itseld, but because it is a great starting point for cruises and other forms of exploration in Finland's beautiful Lakelands area.

These tips are what we managed to squeeze in only one day (fortunately, in June, the sun only sets around 10-11 p.m., so we were able to walk around for a while). We will definitely be back to visit the rest of the region.

Savonlinna ... the cultural capital of Lake Saimaa

"Medival castle of Olavinlinna"

Situated on two islands between Lake Haapavesi and Lake Pihlajavesi, Savonlinna is an attractive town with an imposing medieval castle. Olavinlinna - St. Olaf's Castle - was founded in 1475 by Erik Axelsson Tott. The castle served to repel attacks from the east and to guarantee control of the Savo region for the Swedish Crown. The medieval castle consists of a main castle with three towers and a bailey with an encircling wall reinforced by towers. The castle went through numerous phases of construction, first as a Swedish and from 1743 as a Russian border fortification.
