Description:
A Unesco World Heritage Site, Suomenlinna sea fortress is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Finland. Suomenlinna is also a suburb of Helsinki with around 800 residents. The fortress was shaped by three historic eras when it helped to defend first Sweden, then Russia and ultimately Finland. There are six kilometers of walls, 100 cannons, exciting tunnels and beautiful parks in the fortress. There are also museums, guided tours, events and restaurants in Suomenlinna.

Private guided tours of the fortress, in several languages, can be booked in advance (guidebooking@suomenlinnatours.com). Possible public guided tours are announced in the events calendar on the Suomenlinna webpages.

The fortress is easily accessed all year by public transport (HSL) ferry from the Market Square. The travelling time is approx.15minutes. In summer, from May to September, also JT-Line waterbuses operate to Suomenlinna.
