“amazing place”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I was there in the winter time and the place seemed really amazing. I suppose it is even more wonderful in the summer time. The bunkers, fortress is something that I didn't see before. If you visit the place during the winter time when dusk falls quickly, the place makes a really big impression.

“The historic breakaway for everyone”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

As a born native of Helsinki, I like to play guitar with our son on the island. A sunny summer's afternoon busking for a beer with friends is like a small holiday in itself.

The place is filled with history, Finnish, Russian and Swedish.

Full five stars would be the norm score for Suomenlinna, if it wouldn't be for the rude service in the bars and shops closest to the main ferry pier. The restaurants and bars further out on the bastions are nicer.

Don't miss the original sailboat shipyard, the drydock is a piece of cultural heritage in its own right!

“Beautiful Area”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Not much open as we visited in the winter, but still enjoyed visiting. Very beautiful area in winter, and would be even better in summer.

“Interesting, but go in the summer.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Very interesting place, although we were at a slight disadvantage, travelling at the end of December so, with the exception of one cafe and the small supermarket, everything was closed. Definitely worth a visit though, especially as the trip on the ferry only cost 2.20 euros.
