The best summer tip for kids. Near the castle, passenger port, jaht port, museum, art gallery etc. Nice walking from the city down town.

some locals told us about the sandcastles so we set off to see them, having seen many good sand structures in Europe there are out of this world, reaching far into the sky the detail is amazing. As you walk around the area you come across more and more each one independently dedicated to and EU country and telling their own story. well worth a visit.

Once a year I enjoy visiting this exhibition of very special art. In addition, the children of the family enjoy different kinds of rides and jumps. Cafe and ice cream is available, too. The beautiful lake Saimaa just beside is a great bonus.

It is the annual event to build up a huge sand castle in the harbour of Lappeenranta. This time we saw sand sculptors in work. They seemed to be from different countries. Remember to enjoy of a local delicacy vety (nitrogen) or atomi (atom) in the nearby kiosks earlier on the way to the sand castle. They are meat pies filled by different ingredients. A long list of questions regarding the content of your delicious pie.
