Savonlinna, a traditionally popular destination for visitors, was founded 375 years ago on the islands of Saimaa near Olavinlinna castle. Its location on the borders of the East and West with its outstanding lakefronts and scenery attract over 300,000 tourists to the region every year. The Savonlinna Opera Festival, which has been held for over 100 years, gathers more than 70,000 spectators every July. Savonlinna is known for its northernmost medieval castle, national parks and amazing lake areas that offer abundant opportunities for outdoor activities and nature watching. Tourism is rapidly growing and Savonlinnas strategic approach to internationalisation as a tourism destination is already bearing fruit in the form of increased cooperation with international tour operators. We have several unique locations that stand ready for international tourism investment.
