This is a photoblog of Russian tourists parking badly in my hometown Lappeenranta, Finland. The purpose of this blog however is not to implicate that every Russian parks like this, nor does it mean that all Finns park perfectly.
The distance between Lappeenranta and St. Petersburg is less than 200 km. Lappeenranta is a major target of Russian tourism in Finland and its' generating even more tax free sales than Helsinki. Having only about 70 000 residents and getting such a high amount of Russian tourists means that the visitors are well presented in the everyday life of Lappeenranta. This also means that situations like the ones presented in these photos are quite common.
I hope that no one gets too upset about this blog, but will instead see the comical value of the photos. Due to popular demand I have also created a parallel blog about Finns failing to park correctly. This blog is available at http://finparking.blogspot.fi. There you can also share your photos to the public.
Finally, if you happen to find yourself in the photos.. Well, I hope you will do better next time! Parking properly is the easiest way to avoid getting a photo of you published on this page while visiting Lappeenranta :)
