Some impressions from a short visit to the monumental looking castle in Savonlinna. A must do if you visit Finland ! After being 7 years in Finland finally I managed also to go there. Currently are final preparation for the Savonlinna Opera Festival ongoing, held in the castle, so the inner yard is unfortunately not visible. Anyhow I would like to share some great pictures from a Castle. Go there and wait for a tour guide who brings you to the top of the castle and explains the history when a Dano-Swedish statesman founded the fortress in 1475 and how the Russians take it over in 1743…
