A fascinating island sea fortress, Suomenlinna once protected Helsinki's harbor from invasion
Built by the Swedes in 1748 as a bastion against the ever-encroaching Russians, Suomenlinna is one of the worlds largest nautical forts, and is reachable year-round by a brisk ferry ride from the citys Market Square.

    The fort was interesting though much of it appeared closed as it was Winter. Easy to get to on quick ferry ride.
