Sea Fortress of Suomenlinna

posted in: Finland, PHOTOS | 2

Our favorite in Scandinavia? Its magnificent coast dotted with countless islands. We had the pleasure of traveling around the Bergen and Stockholm archipelagos and to Suomenlinna Island near Helsinki, the prettiest of them all. The weather was splendid so this lovely piece of nature was full of charming Finns. To top it all, there is a Unesco heritage site –the Suomenlinna Fortress. More than an island museum it is a living place. Around 900 citizens still inhabit it together with rabbits and strange ducks. The place is perfect to enjoy the sun, have a picnic under a tree or to visit museums. We decided to soak up nature just strolling around and observing people. An absolute must if you are in Helsinki!

    Suomenlinna is nice place to visit.I have recorded a video from suomenlinna in winter. It’s really beautiful with the snow and everything.Ii really recommend visiting Suomenlinna Fort if you are visiting Helsinki. I used my go pro camera to record footage so sorry for not perfect quality.
