We had to stop here as we were nearby. Have visit the sandcastles once earlier. The theme was different this year. The are is not big and there is free entrance. The sandcastles are really nice - big and really well done!

Sandcastle is something that has been an attraction of Lappeenranta summer for 10 years. In near future Castle will be even more attractive. Hopefully it will get closer to harbour and that way easier to get... Different every year. This year there were Heroes!!!

Nice place to visit with kids. Easy parking. Weather precautions needed as there is no cover nearby.

Visit this sandcastle does not cost anything and you will see different kind of characters (Maradona, Super Mario, Wolverine, F1 car) made of sand. You should visit here.
