 lappeenranta

  Lappeenranta is the administrative, business and cultural centre of the South Karelia region. The eleventh-largest Finnish city by number of inhabitants, Lappeenranta is a city renowned for its friendly and good-humoured people, its natural beauty, its happy Karelian character and its good prospects for the future.

Lappeenranta has a colourful history, lying as it does on the border between two different cultures. The harbour area of Lappeenranta used to be widely known as Lapvesi market place in the seventeenth century. It was so important as a trading place that general Governor Pietari Brahe proposed that the Swedish government should grant town priviledges to Lapvesi. In 1649 Queen Christina of Sweden signed the instrument of foundation, including an emblem, a savage, for the new town. The town received its Swedish name Villmanstrand ("wild man's shore") from the savage figure in the emblem.

The Swedes began the fortification of Lappeenranta after the period of the "Great Hate" in 1721. In the Battle of Lappeenranta in 1741, the fortress fell in five hours. In the Peace of Turku in 1743 after the period of the "Lesser Hate", Lappeenranta fell under Russian rule, nearly a hundred years before the rest of Finland. Later on Gustavus III tried once more to conquer back the lost territory, but did not succeed.

It wasn't until the year 1811 that "old Finland" and the rest of Finland were reunited. This started a 130-year-period when Lappeenranta was no longer the scene of battles, but a peaceful inland district. In World War II Lappeenranta experienced heavy soviet bombardment.

LAPPEENRANTA - THE JEWEL OF SOUTHERN LAKE SAIMAA AND A GATEWAY TO THE EAST

Lappeenranta is a friendly town of great natural beauty with 58,000 inhabitants. It is the administrative, commercial and cultural centre of South Karelia, and a hub of lakeside tourism.

Lappeenranta has many nicknames, including the Town of Lindens, Cavalry Town, Gate to Lake Saimaa, Gateway to the East Naturally, each appellation has its roots in the history of the town. For example, the first linden trees were planted in the parks of Lappeenranta in the 1780s, today nearly 2,600 lindens line the streets of the town. The centuries old cavalry tradition continues with the cavalrymen riding through the streets of the town dressed in red trousers and elaborately embroidered jackets. The Fortress, with its museums, craftsmen's shops and cafs breathes history. Every day, around ten ships depart from the harbour, heading for the labyrinth of islands on Lake Saimaa or through the Saimaa Canal.

Winter in Lappeenranta is a lively and active season. A rich variety of theatre performances and concerts, excellent accommodation, fascinating museums and magnificent opportunities for outdoor activities, seasoned with Karelian hospitality, make Lappeenranta an all-year-round tourist destination. Well-kept cross country skiing tracks start from the centre of the town, with many skiing events to enliven the atmosphere in the late winter.
