Local history museum and Lemi Särä lunch, 10:00 – 13:00
The guests will take a bus from Lappeenranta to Lemi (about 30 minutes) to visit the Local History Museum and have the local delicacy, Särä, for lunch. Founded in 1958, the Lemi Local History Museum is located in the village of Lemi near the beautiful village church. The museum was opened to the public in 1968 and is owned by the municipality of Lemi.
Särä is a traditional South-Karelian dish made of lamb and potatoes and cooked in a wood-fired baking oven following a thousand-year old tradition. Slow baking guarantees a delicious taste experience. The dish is served with rieska bread and home-brewed beer, and is followed by ëraisin soupí, a delicious dessert made of raisins and thickened with potato flour. In a genuine Lemi way, Särä is enjoyed slowly, and you can have as many servings as you like.
