Experience the culture and geology of downtown Lappeenranta

Three panels in the sign open up different contents on your mobile device (a series of panels beginning with the title “Discover the hidden treasures of Lake Saimaa”). You need the free Salmi AR app to view the content. Content includes pictures, videos, audio narration, and peepholes. You’ll find information about Suvorov’s time, wartime, and industrialization, and get to see what the area looked like 11,000 years ago and how the ancestors lived. The contents are currently available only in Finnish.

The Lappeenranta Lakeside route (Rantaraitti) passes through the Fortress and harbour. You can find the route description of the trail and instructions for arrival from the contents of the Outdooractive platform.

Lappeenranta museums have mobile tours in the Fortress area. The tours introduce you to the nature and culture, vegetation and history of the Fortress. Mobile tours can be found at these links:
