      Hi, I'm going to Savonlinna for 3 weeks this July for a Finnish language course. I'm vegan and I was wondering if anyone knows about veg-friendly restaurants in Savonlinna. Am I pretty much out of luck? Should I just stick to buying veggies at the market square?

      From Joensuu North by Train

      Joensuu May 9, 2008 at 12:44 PM


      Can someone please tell me what is the best way to go from Joensuu Northward by train, preferably a night train? I want to go to cross the border and go to Narvik in Norway. I understand that I need to take a bus or Ferry(?) around Kemi. I have seen schedule of trains arriving in Joensuu, but not departing to go north. I will be traveling June 5-9, then heading to Oslo, where I must be on June 12.

      Thanks for your help. I will be traveling alone and this is my first trip traveling with a Eurail pass in Europe, so every help is appreciated.

      Also, any suggestion of budget accomodations along the way are welcome.

    • boats kuopio savonlinna, cheap way of visiting lakes!

      Kuopio Aug 9, 2006 at 3:57 AM

      I want to see some of the wonderful lakes of this area. I am pretty sure I will be in Kuopio-since I found a cheap flight!). So I wonder if savonlinna by itself worths it, or if the interesting part is just getting there from the lakes.
      On the other hand, I am very interested in knowing if there is comething cheap that allows me to visit the lake; I mean that I found many cruises, using the following link...
      ...but I m looking for something cheaper. actually I am not exactly looking for a cruise, but a regular boat or any other way of sailing in the lake, and I dont care if they offer me food, music or tours guided, because thats not what I m looking for.
      Thanks so much for your help, any info will be useful for me (since I have no idea!!)

      How to come by Public Transport from Vesanto to Tampere

      Vesanto Jul 22, 2006 at 4:25 PM

      The distance between Vesanto and Tampere is only 264 km and Vesanto is not nothing (at least it has a church, a school and a disco - I know, for the complete definition of a Finnish city an ALKO would be needed, too) and Tampere is the biggest inland city of all Northic countries and 264 km are not an exotic distance in Finland. Is there any Public Transport between these two places the way that Tampere (or its airport) could be reached from Vesanto the same day until 16:00? Please dont tell me about hitchhiking or taxi - I mean normal Public Transport as expected in one of the best civilized countries in the world. The only thing I found so far is that in a distance of 55 km is the train station of Suonenjoki where the trains to Helsinki (with changes to Tampere at Pieksaemaeki) stop every second hour - but no evidence of any Public Transport between Vesanto and Suonenjoki). But what for example are people from Vesanto doing if they want to travel either to Tampere or to the capital Helsinki on Public Transport?? Bus pages like Matkahuolto did not help me at all. Please help me! Otherwise I can not longer believe that Finland is a civilized country with an adequate infrastructure.

We're planning to rent a cottage for a weekend in some place near Savonlinna, however, we're not having car and we're concern about the transport between Savonlinna and the cotagge.

    • First time in Finland

      Savonlinna Mar 13, 2006 at 10:21 AM

      We will be driving from Goteborg to Stockholm and take the night ferry to Turku. From there we intend to visit Naantali and Tammissarri on our way to Helsinki. After a couple of days in Helsinki we want to drive to Savonlinna via Provo and Lappeenranta. We leave our car in Savonlinna and want to take boat ride to Kuopio. We stay overnight, enjoy the Sauna' visit the town and take public transport back to Savonlinna. We overnight in Savonlinna, pickup the car and head to Helsinki Harbor to take a Ferry to Kallinn. We need advise, comments on this trip plan and suggestions on accomodation and things to do and particularly about the boat trip and trip back to Savonlinna.
      Thank you. Zeeman

      How to come from Vesanto to Storlien /Trondheim on 11 August

      Vesanto Aug 5, 2004 at 7:48 AM

      Vesanto is in the middle of nowhere, on my werb search I found that its only connection by public transport to the world is - according to the web - a bus line to Kuopio but that is definitely the wrong way because this way it would be train to Turku, boat to Stockholm and then train via Östersund to Storlien and Trondheim. Is there a better way covered by public transport? The problem is that I do not see hoiw the Vaasa - Umea ferry on 11 August (leaving 15:00) could be reached from Vesanto - or teh one leaving on 12 August at 9:00? And the ferries do not arrivbe in Umea but in Holmsund - is there any reasonable public transport right from the ferry to Umea city to reach the copnnections (with numerous changes, of course) to Storlien or Trondheim?
