Savonlinna stands between two of so many Finnish lakes, a place of exceptional natural beauty, which provides a stunning setting for Olavinlinna medieval castle, best-preserved one in whole Scandinavia. Once used by Swedish and Russian overlords, it enjoys much more peaceful function nowadays as a venue for annual Opera Festival. Footbridges connect mainland to forested island of Sulosaari, frequented by locals and tourists for evening events or lazy picnics. Proximity to Russian border and an aiport base for budget airlines make Savonlinna a real mecca for Russian tourists craving for nice weekend trips from Saint Petersburg or a connection flight to Europe. Obviously enough, the opposite direction works exactly as fine.
