Adventure in Suomenlinna
Suomenlinna is a fascinating destination for the whole family to explore: 6 kilometres of wall, over 100 cannons, exciting tunnels, museums, cafés and restaurants.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Suomenlinna is one of the most popular attractions in Finland for a reason. The fortress is accessed by ferry from the Helsinki Market Square. The ferry service runs throughout the year, and the trip across the sea is a small adventure itself. How many islands can you spot along the way?
Suomenlinna Museum Day 6 June
On Gustav’s Day on 6 June, Suomenlinna will be celebrating a Museum Day. On that day there will be free entry to all six of Suomenlinna’s museums.
