Suomenlinna is a great place to spend a few hours. The boats from Helsinki Market Square usually leave every 20 min and the journey time is 15 min. Once at the islands, it is a 500m walk to the visitor center. Guided tours in english begin at 11AM and 2PM in the summer months. You must take the guided tour. The fortress was interesting on its own, but the tour guide really explained what everything was and the history behind it. However, be prepared to walk a bit (maybe a total of 1.5 miles).
