Just a short distance by ferry from city. Excellent sea views and interesting history.

Nice lovely, tranquil island wish we had more time and that it didnt rain. We would love to have spent a nice time just sitting by the water

The fortress is nothing special. In the summertime it is very nice to walk around the island, but do not expect big WOW sights. The best part of the visit to Suomenlinna for me was the boat trip with great views over Helsinki and surrounding islands, and dinner at Walhalla restaurant.

We spent almost all day on the islands. There's plenty to see including buildings, fortifications, the church and several museums. There are lots of cafes, resturants and kiosks so you won't go hungry or thirsty. We had a great pizza at Pizzeria Nickolai. The spectacle of large ferries and cruise ships passing so close to shore is quite something.

Very accessible by boat ride, easy to walk around. Information boards are good although I would have preferred more information. Lovely surroundings and, in summer, very attractive.
