The picturesque town of Savonlinna sits on two islands surrounded by shimmering lakes and lush greenery. A popular tourist destination, the town draws visitors to its world-famous opera festival, as well as its well-preserved and attractive medieval castle--one of the most impressive in all of northern Europe. Although a compact city, Savonlinna's museums, galleries, shops, market, and bustling restaurants provide plenty of activities year-round, while the shores of the city's lakes are ideal spots to relax in the summer.

Where to stay in Savonlinna

Explore Savonlinna and the surrounding Lakeland district from one of the luxury hotels situated in the compact city center--most of which is concentrated on the city's two main islands. This way you can easily tour the town on foot and be within easy reach of the famous Olavinlinna castle. To enjoy the wild countryside and surrounding lakes, opt for a lodge or guesthouse outside of town. Though you'll definitely need access to a car in order to get around, these options provide cheaper rooms, a quaint setting, and sometimes feature bed and breakfast-style options for food.
