    Great history. Very good example of a fortress island. UNESCO world heritage site. Be sure to visit the WWII submarine Vesikko and the lighthouse church as they're asking the few left in the world.

    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!

    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 :) www.onnellisuusopisto.fi

    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!

    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

    an inhabited sea fortress built on six islands; One of the most popular tourist attractions in Helsinki as well as a popular picnicking spot for the city's inhabitants. Take a ferry ride there :)

    Great outdoor museum! Take the food basket from home because local cafes are expensive. Two-way ticket is €5 (from Helsinki).

    Picnic places all around the islands. Handicraft shops. Go to the walls at Kustaanmiekka at around 5.15pm to see a big cruise ship sail through the narrow strait between islands.

    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.

    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.

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

    Best to come visit in summer but winter time gives another more rough, windy and silent atmosphere with little tourists

    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

    Pick up the guide brochure on the ferry or visitor center. It has a map, description of sights, cafés and restaurants, and opening hours.

    Every day between 9 and 10 in the morning and 5 to 5:30 in the afternoon Helsinki - Stockholm ferries pass the Kustaanmiekka strait close to the King's gate.

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

    In summer is outstanding but in winter is magical! It's always windy so take a light jacket or a good winter coat.

    Go to Valimo! The only affordable place on the island to eat. Has sauna too and a lovely ambience.
  • Carl-Magnus C.

    Very touristy because it's very picturesque. The locals like to picnic up on the cliff.

    Great sea view, good for spending time with friends on fresh air. Not for visiting alone, too boring

    До этого острова от Торговой площади (сразу за фонтаном) довезет паром туда-обратно = 7€. Но если пройти метров сто вперед,то увидите автомат,кот. продает билет на другой паром- туда-обратно = 5 € :-)

    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.

    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..

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

    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€.

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

    великолепный остров с которого без отличных фотографий и моря впечатлений не уедите. не ленитесь и пройдите на самые удаленные берега - вид невероятный!

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

    Здорово сюда приезжать и гулять под промозглым ветром. Потом греться в уютном кафе и опять стынуть. Весьма самобытное место.
