Transport links

Savonlinna can be reached by car, train, air or even by boat from the Baltic Sea through the Saimaa canal.

There is no doubt that Savonlinna is the hub of water-borne traffic in Lake Saimaa. The tourist harbour for leisure cruises lies in the heart of the town. Savonlinna also has plenty of guest harbours for small boats, intended for tourists. The deep harbour serves cargo vessels heading to and from the oceans of the world.

Different traffic and parking rules apply to local traffic in the summer and in the winter. In the summer parking is in short supply during the popular Savonlinna Opera Festival.
