The Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän is located in the middle of the Saimaa Lake District and next to Finland's oldest National Park Linnansaari. The history of Järvisydän began as early as 1658, when a member of the Heiskanen family received a piece of land for his exemplary army service. But there was also a condition attached! He had to build a guesthouse and create a place where horses could be changed. Today the guesthouse is run by the 11th generation.
The Lappeenranta and Imatra region on Lake Saimaa is close to the Russian border, just a few hours from the Finnish capital Helsinki. From Helsinki it can be easily reached in just a few hours by train, bus or car. In summer, you can also travel visa-free from Lappeenranta to Russia and combine the beautiful nature of the lake landscape with the cultural metropolis of St. Petersburg.
