Listed under Cities in Lappeenranta, Finland.

Pin It

Extremely close to the Russian border, this large Finnish city dates back to the Middle Ages. Its 19th century mineral baths are a treat, especially when the northern winter weather sets in. Winter sports are a favorite in Lappeenranta, but summer offers its own fun in the parks and beaches of the area. All year round there are a number of historic sites to visit, most notably Lappeenranta Fortress, which holds a popular annual festival called The Night at the Fortress.
