The ferry ride & entry fees are included in a Helsinki /travel card. Its worth a visit. Nice walk on the island.

This is one of the top attractions of Helsinki. the Fortress is set on Islands a 15 minute boat ride from the Market Square. The history is engrossing and is explained in a continuous film in the Visitors Centre. The whole area is now used for residential and cultural purposes and the landscape is quite beautiful with sweeping lawns and lilacs everywhere. There are cafes and restaurants available.

If there is only one island in Finland where you must visit, it is Suomenlinna! Take picnic things and bottles of wine, too.

Locals and visitors both enjoy this historical site. Go see it! The boat ride is lovely in itself and having a picnic at the Fortress is absolutely lovely.
