    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.

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

    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

    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..

    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.
