The idyllic Pallo and Rakuunamäki area is located within a short walking distance from the city centre. The nearest educational facilities are easily accessible on foot or by bicycle and a grocery store is located nearby.
Pallo is located near the port and the old fortress, and all cultural services and shops of the city centre are within easy reach. In the summertime, the residents of Lappeenranta like to spend time at the market square at the port, which is also the scene for many cultural events.
Rakuunamäki has a long history and is a popular area to live in. Some buildings in the Rakuunamäki area date back to the 19th century and are now being skilfully restored for new residential use. New buildings constructed in the area must fit in with the old buildings. You can sense the local history at the Adolf Ehrnrooth square and the old Paldo cemetery, where the last burial took place in the late 19th century.
