How to get to Sulkava?

The nearest towns are Savonlinna (27 km) and Mikkeli (59 km). By public transport you can get there by first taking the train to Mikkeli and the bus to Sulkava. Car pooling is also recommended - the Saimaa lake area has some breathtakingly beautiful sceneries for a road trip.



How to find Soutustadion (Rowing Stadium) and Rantamakasiini?

The address of the Rowing Stadium is Alanteentie 1, or Tannilantie 16 by Google Maps. You can walk to the Stadium from the centre of Sulkava by the picturesque lakeside street Alanteentie. 

Tiittala Mansion's Rantamakasiini (an old lakeside shed) is to be found along the way on Alanteentie 13.
