The construction works of Suomenlinna fortress began in 1748 during the time Finland was a part of the Swedish Kingdom. The fortress, which was built on six islands, was considered invincible, but with the mysterious surrendering against the Russians in 1808, the former Swedish fortress fell under Russian rule together with the rest of Finland. During its over 250 years long history the fortress has lived through many different kinds of times. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Finland's most popular tourist attractions. Suomenlinna is also a district of the city of Helsinki, with a permanent population of more than 800.
During the walking tour at the Suomenlinna sea fortress an authorized guide will tell you about the eventful history of the island as well as about the life on the island today. The guide will take you to the most important sights of the fortress, such as the Castle Courtyard, Piper's Park and the Dry Dock, which in its days was among the largest in the world. You will enjoy lunch at Restaurant Chapman and after lunch you have an opportunity to explore the island on your own for an hour.
