How to get there?

Vyborg is situated close to the Finnish-Russian border, just 60 km from Lappeenranta and Imatra. Vyborg is easy to reach from South Karelia – by boat from Lappeenranta along the Saimaa Canal, as well as by bus or train (Allegro: www.vr.fi), and even by ones own car. The novelty of this summer are the visa free boat trips from Lappeenranta to Vyborg on m/s Carelia!

If you wish you can easily continue your journey from Vyborg to the metropolis of St. Petersburg by bus or train. The Allegro train takes you in 1,5 hours from Vainikkala railway station (Lappeenranta) to St. Petersburg!
