We had an extra day in Helsinki and the Fortress of Suomenlinna turned out to fit in very nicely. We did not join any guided tour, just taking a slow walk on the islands against some very cold winds in an early, sunny October afternoon. This site certainly lives up-to the UNESCO World Heritage prestige and I would not hesitate to recommend it. The only piece of advise is that if you plan on visiting in the winter (off-peak) season, please check the ferry schedule becoz the ferries do not come very frequent.
