Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This charming church can be found at the Lappeenranta Fortress. It was completed in 1785 during the reign of Catherine the Great.

    The church was closed during our visit. So we couldn't see the interior.

    The lake is beatiful and the locks are an experience. Plenty of scenery to take in. Definitely a recommendable trip.

    Plenty of history around in this nice, quiet neighborhood. There are not really that much left of the actual fortress (only the outer walls, I think...) but nice old buiildings and a nice view to the lake.

    This museum is a bit of a hidden gem. It’s very interesting, focusing on Finnish historical (war time) aviation. As the museum is run and maintained by volunteers, you cannot compare it to some big museums that have big money behind, but it’s something truly fun and nice to visit, also with kids!

    Interesting spot. I wonder how do they manage to keep their sculpture up even with the rain and the wind. Do they blaze the sand somehow?

    Inside theme park at the "Capri" Shopping center. 18 eur for each (3 yrs and up) or 58 eur for the whole family. You can leave the place and come back with the bracelet. Our 5 yrs old boy enjoyed very much and I can imagine it will be even better after few years, when he gets older. In my opinion, it's a little bit over priced - compared to bigger outdoor theme parks. But hey, this is fun also in winter time or when it's raining!

    Video games, rope slide, foam block sea, inside real ice hockey and football style games, paddle cars, slides, Angry Birds toons.

    There is also variety of merchandise available and a cafe.

    Very large church with a belltower, worth a visit, although it did not look to be open so you couldn't go inside.

    The house museum can only be visited on a guided tour, but it is worth the effort. An excellent presentation shed light on the history of Ivan W, who came to Finland as a serf in the 1840s, became a Finnish citizen, and his rise to one of the wealthiest men in Lappeenranta. He was a true serial entrepreneur. The house and Wolkoff's story tell how a free society feeds creativity by giving everyone the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their origin. At the same time, the history of the house tells about the connections between Finland and Russia, which Russia's aggressive attack on Ukraine has now destroyed for years. But the perspective of the house's history is in decades or even longer.

    At first sight you are amazed. When you look at the church outside, you might think it is a runway to heaven. Someone would say it is not beautiful becaus it is made of concrete. We thought it is beautiful in it's own way.

    During our visit the place was partially closed so we could not see all the animals. But it was fun to see what ever we could see. We tried catching fish from the pond which was also fun experience (because its pretty much guaranteed that you would catch something xD ).

    This is a good place especially for children and families.
