Other sights & attractions in Finland and beyond

For opera lovers, the city of Savonlinna hosts an opera festival in the summer. Most of the program takes place in the evocative setting of the medieval Olavinlinna Castle.


For hikers, fishermen, kayakers and those who want to see the midnight Sun, then Lapland is the place to visit. It’s a short plane ride away from Helsinki, a somewhat longer train or car ride. Well worth the visit, but beware of the mosquitoes!


Tallinn, Stockholm and St. Petersburg are all accessible for short visits. Tallinn can be done in one day by taking the hydrofoil.
