    Incredibly beautiful blending of natural landscapes, Finnish architecture, and military history. Well worth a trip on a sunny day

    Come here when the sun is shining! It's most of the time outside, strolling along the island.

    Одно из лучших мест доя отдыха. Музеи, кафе, цветы цветут, море плещется!

    Более красивой крепости никогда раньше не встречала. Она потрясающа. Территория ее настолько огромна, что и суток не хватит для осмотра.

    This is a very nice place, perfect to stop by during your trip in this special island! You feel like a home, with a nice and good soup and self service water and bread!

    A small island few kilometres from Helsinki mainland. Ferry departs every hour.

    В центральном музее можно подцепить экскурсию и слегка подкрепиться и даже подогреться глёгом. Но зимой тут сурово.

    One of the most beautiful place I've been to! The sunset over the Baltic Sea is incredible! Comparable with one on Santorini, not even sure which one I liked more. Landscapes like somewhere in Ireland

    Kesän ja talven kohokohta on Suomenlinnan vierailu. Vain vaatetus kohdalleen ja menoksi 💙

    Скучновато, на 3 балла. Можно ехать через HSL/HRT по обычному городскому проездному. Можно проехать и "зайцем", контроля почти не бывает, но если поймают - штраф 80€.

    Beautiful island! Get a picnic and spend half a day. Loads of remote spots for a quiet picnic if you walk further down towards the small beach

    Bu adayı görmeden Helsinki'den ayrılmayın.Günlük biletiniz varsa ücretsiz, yoksa 5 avroya gidip dönebilirsiniz.15 dk sürüyor ve her 20 dk'da bir feribot kalkıyor.Güzel bir yürüyüş ve foto için ideal..

    Great island...You have to see this island before leave.You can take awesome photos.It takes 15 mins with ferry and you only pay 5 euros if you do not have Helsinki Card.

    Fortaleza con mucha historia, Patrimonio UNESCO. Ferry i/v 5€. Los museos una vez allí son caros, pero el central es muy completo y pasan vídeo con opción de audio en español. Es típico hacer picnic

    Ехать только летом и ещё раз - летом. Открытые пространства острова и ветер с моря могут смыть благостные впечатления от пейзажей и уединённости мест.

    Здесь можно бродить целую вечность! Море, чистый воздух, за растениями ухаживают. А пушки и подводная лодка ничего особенного не представляют, как и сама крепость. Здесь просто хорошо.

    Simply the MUST in Helsinki, plan an entire day for the walks, coffees, walks, lunch and more walks. Regardless the weather in the city take a scarf and/or wind jacket.

    All restaurant kitchens close before nine, so get there early!

    Торопливая экскурсия от турфирмы с доставкой на пароме туда/обратно - 20€. Грустная переплата...

    A fun place to spend a day and laugh with your friends. You can ask Onnellisuusopisto (Insitute of Happiness) for a laughing yoga session here to make the day unforgetable :)

    Visit to submarin musium!

    Unesco world heritage spot in front of the Helsinki. If you happend to be a paraglider pilot it's even possible to soar above the walls in right winds. Not for beginners.

    Be aware that many of the museums and sights are only open in Summer, still worth a visit though!

    Suomenlinna is the only UNESCO World Heritage site around the Helsinki capital region. Come here for a lovely picnic and enjoy the picturesque surroundings.

    Great to spend an afternoon here exploring the fortress, enjoying the scenery and having a picnic by the sea (if the weather permits).

    I took my friend to Suomenlinna. He's been there many times before but never had walked all the way to Kustaanmiekka. He was amazed how great place it was! So walk all the way through! It's worth it!
