While in Helsinki, we managed a trip to Suomenlinna Island, where an 18th century sea fortress was built by the Swedes to counter Russian maritime power. A UNESCO World Heritage Site for unique military architecture.

  1. Suomenlinna is nice place to visit.I have recorded a video from suomenlinna in winter. It’s really beautiful with the snow and everything.Ii really recommend visiting Suomenlinna Fort if you are visiting Helsinki. I used my go pro camera to record footage so sorry for not perfect quality. – Suomenlinna Fort
