Puumalansalmi and other marinas
The Puumalansalmi Strait links waterways between the northern and southern parts of Saimaa. Also known as “the Gibraltar of Saimaa,” the strait has always been an important junction for water traffic. Even today, log rafts, pleasure boats and cargo ships pass through the deep-water channel.
