Suomenlinna Picnic and guided Tour, Helsinki

Suomenlinna Picnic and guided Tour, Helsinki

Suomenlinna  was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list as a unique monument of military architecture in 1991. The construction work started in 1748 during the Swedish era and took 40 years. The fortress was given a name Sveaborg, in Finnish it was called Viapori. It was never involved in actual battles. In 1808, after a mysterious surrender Viapori was besieged by the Russian forces in the Russo-Swedish war. 

Suomenlinna is the most important sightseeing of Helsinki, open throughout the year. First of all, the ferry journey makes it possible to see Helsinki from the sea. The ferry is part of the Helsinki City Transport so it makes most sense to buy a day ticket and use it for the ferry as well.  

Guided walk  is a great way to get to know the history of Suomenlinna. Many war ships have been designed and built in Suomenlinna, many vows, intrigues and parties have taken place there. During the walk you will get stories about the colorful history and life on island today. You'll see all the main sightseeings such as the Susisaari courtyard and the drydock, which was largest drudock in the world in the early days. Guided tour include an entrance ticket to the Ehrensvärd museum during its opening time.

Café Piper has served the summer guests of the fortress since 1928 for over 80 years. This charming cafeteria is surrounded by a British type of a garden, which offers a perfect place for picnics and great sea view.  No wonder, that Suomenlinna is also favoured by the locals. You can get your picnic basket before or after your guided tour
