The town is known for the medieval Olavinlinna Castle and the annual Opera Festival and is surrounded by the pure and breathtakingly beautiful lake Saimaa, the largest lake in Finland.

Savonlinna is competing for the title of European Capital of Culture 2026. Here is a quote from the Saimaa Phenomenon website : “We are phenomenal! People who reside here are known for their endearing characteristics of joviality, hospitality, open-heartedness and perseverance. During our year as European Capital of Culture (ECoC), we plan to share our attitude towards life – which we refer to as “Eastern Joy” – with all of Europe. We are convinced that Eastern Finland and the Saimaa region offer the world’s best place to live and thrive.”
