Lappeenranta Travel Guide: 73 reviews and 140 photos

My ex-boyfriend used to go to university in Lappeenranta so we came here for a few days during our summer holidays. However, somehow I got the impression that we didn't leave his apprtment much because I don't have any nice pictures or very useful tips about this place I'm afraid ;)

Lappeenranta is a nice little town at Saimaa lake. Actually it's not that small but it feels very small because the different parts of the city are located very far from each other.

Lappeenranta is very close to the Russian border in South Karelia so all the shops employ people who speak Russian and most signs are available in Russian, too. See my general tip for an explanation for this page's title!
