Heinävesi, a municipality of monastries and six canals


Heinävesi is located in the province of Etelä-Savo and the very beautiful area of The Saimaa Lakeland. The population is 4500. Two Orthodox monasteries, unique in the Nordic countries, are situated in Heinävesi.
The Monastery of Valamo and the Convent of Lintula are living centres of the orthodox faith and culture and they heartily welcome all visitors.

20 % of the land area is covered by water. The Heinävesi Water Route has been classified as a national heritage landscape. Along the narrow and winding waterway there are no less than six canals giving variety to a boat trip in Heinävesi. The Varistaipale canal with its five locks boasts the largest drop in water level (14.5 metres) in Finland.
