A beautiful forest, the shores of Lake Saimaa and fresh air inspire everyone. The Great Lake Saimaa, which is 4,400 square kilometers wide, is the country’s largest lake, lalong the border, in a place where two cultures who have been in constant contact over the centuries come together: the Russian and the Finnish. Here lives a rare and endangered freshwater seal species, the Saimaa ringed seal, as well as another endangered species, the Saimaa salmon.
