Take a cruise from [[Lappeenranta]] to the Saimaa, Saimaa canal or Vyborg, Russia , through the canal! This canal was build to connect the Saimaa to the [[Baltic Sea]] at the dawn of industrialisation. The canal was modernized in the 1960's. Finland pays rent for the Russian parts of the canal. The current hire contract expires on 2013, and Finland is currently trying to start negotiating extension to the contract. The canal itself connects to the '''Bay of Finland''', on Russian territory, close to [[Vyborg]] (Finn.''Viipuri''). The canal is mostly used by cargo ships, but there are also passenger boats operating from Lappeenranta to Vyborg. It is also used by private boats from Finland and abroad.
