Suomenlinna is a historical sea fortress and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fortress is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Finland with about one million visitors every year. Suomenlinna is also a city district and a home of about 800 residents. The fortress is situated only a 15-minute sea trip away from the Helsinki city centre. There are museums, restaurants, cafés, and arts and crafts studios open at all seasons. Suomenlinna hosts several events year-round.
Suomenlinna is part of Helsinki archipelago and we are happy to be able to enjoy archipelago nature as well as magical, historical buildings - still very close to the centre of Helsinki - capital of Finland.
