An Island Fortress

Formerly known as Viapori, Suomenlinna comprises six islands just off the coast of the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Constructed in the mid 19th century as a stronghold against Russian invaders, Suomenlinna remains a sparsely populated sea fortress as well as an avant garde tourist destination.

Today, Suomenlinna is home to many local artists and artisans who sell their works in charming galleries located on most of the interconnected islands. If you wish to take home some wonderful local art, Suomenlinna is the place to shop.
