Lappeenranta

Trip Planner Europe  /  Finland  /  South Karelia  /  Lappeenranta

Town of Lindens

On the shores of the country's largest lake system, Lappeenrata serves as the economic and cultural center of southeast Finland. It sits just 30 km (19 mi) from the Russian border, a fact that has played an important role in this compact city's culture and 360-year history. Many consider Lappeenranta to represent a meeting and blending of eastern and western cultures. The city's historic fortress, 18th-century Orthodox church, several high-quality museums, and picturesque harbor are all big draws that have contributed to Lappeenranta's status as Finland’s second most visited city. Our Finland trip planning tool allows you to plan your trip to Lappeenranta and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Lappeenranta

While you won't find many true luxury options in Lappeenranta, its hotels offer affordable accommodations. You'll also find hostels and apartments geared toward housing its extensive university student population. Because of its history as a spa town, many hotels feature these sorts of amenities. Most accommodations cluster in the city center around the church and near the small airport, with easy access to the nearby lake. Guesthouses and private apartments outside of town offer more peace and quiet for prices lower than central hotels, but you'll need a car in order to get around efficiently.
