A most picturesque town in the heart of Europe's largest lake district in eastern Finland. Reached by a one-hour flight from Helsinki or 3-hour train journey.
The centre of the town is the medieval Olavinlinna Castle, the main venue for the summer opera festival on a stage built inside the walls of the castle affording amazing acoustics.
It is a breathtakingly beautiful destination for truly unforgettable opera visit.
A stopover for 2 nights in Helsinki is also recommended.
