Summer’s weekly programme

Tips for the Savonlinna region

Taste lörtsy in the Market Square

Coffee with the traditional delicacy lörtsy is a must when visiting Savonlinna in summer. Try a savoury lörtsy pie with all condiments or satisfy your sweet tooth with a lörtsy pastry that is filled with jam (many flavours).

Have a delicious lunch in the castle

A lunch is served in Olavinlinna Castle daily in summer. In addition to the restaurant indoors, there is also a summer terrace with a view towards Lake Saimaa inside the medieval castle’s walls.

Spot birdhouses

Cemetery worker and folk artist Marko Ruuskanen has made as many as 120 birdhouses to Savonlinna’s city centre! Can you spot all of them? The most impressive ones are in the Talvisalo cemetery.

Have ice cream at Lippakioski

The legendary café-kiosk in the passenger harbour has served customers since 1958. Lick a scoop of ice cream or enjoy a soft ice, with or without condiments.
