Is anybody travelling to Finland this summer? If yes, one of your top places to visit must be Suomenlinna, the military fortress island just a short ferry ride away from the Market Square. Even us Finns, visiting Suomenlinna is a must on our to-do list every summer. Suomenlinna is so conveniently accessible, so you hardly have to plan your trip – just hop on the ferry and go! Below you can find a few photos of Suomenlinna that I snapped last summer.

You can find Suomenlinna and many more of the Helsinki islands in our book ‘The Islands of Helsinki’ (English version) – available for download here.

Happy Island-hopping!
