Since Suomenlinna is a famous sea defence site, many people come to Suomenlinna and will be immersed in the buildings and museums in the fort.
And really walked out of the fort to the beach, it is not the same natural scenery. A person on the vast seashore, blowing the sea breeze, watching the ice drifting, although a bit cold, but the scenery is still a lever, the Finnish version of the Blue Ice Lake!
Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a well-known tourist city in Northern Europe, covered by snow and ice for about half a year. The old town of Helsinki is not large and is suitable for walking tours. There is also a well-known attraction in Helsinki, where almost everyone goes, the Suomenlinna in the sea.
Suomenlinna was originally a military fortress, designed by the Swedes, and the name was also called "Swedish Fortress". The military fort began in 1748 and was designed and built by the young Swedish officer Austen Alan Wright, but it was not built until the end of the 18th century.
From the city of Helsinki, you can take a boat to Suomenlinna. The military fort more than 200 years ago has now become a tourist attraction. The island is free to open and visitors can travel to the island simply by purchasing a ticket. The island has many military facilities, walls, fortresses, cannons, etc., as well as a beautiful church.
In 1991, Suomenlinna was listed as a World Heritage Site. There are now ten museums on the island, including the Coastal Fortress Museum, the Wesco Submarine Museum and the Doll Toy Museum. Some museums are charged separately.
Shinjuku Fortress is mainly located on the three islands of Dahei, Xiaohei Island and Langya Island. These three islands are connected to each other and can be visited on foot. There are also some residents on the island. Under the snow in winter, some of the islands local cabins are very beautiful.
Built more than 250 years ago, Suomenlinna is a masterpiece designed by the master Okostin. It is very well preserved and is one of the largest military defense military missions in the world. It is of great significance.
Finnish Fortress is located in the offshore of Helsinki. It is necessary to take a boat at the port. The port is an unmanned ticketing system. It needs to be purchased on the machine and it can be reached in about 20 minutes.
On the island does not require tickets, it is open all year round, but the schedule varies slightly depending on the season. The island has churches, military camps, city gates and other monuments, so it is also one of Finland's most famous attractions, but some museums need to pay a certain amount of tickets, ranging from 5-15 euros, can be chosen according to personal preferences.
The entire Suomenlinna has been listed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO and it is worth a look!
Helsinki has a 100-kilometer coastline and more than 300 islands. The large central park and forest stretch out beyond the city centre... Suomenlinna is one of the best places to visit and the most worthwhile.
I spent a little more than two euros at the city centre terminal and bought a ticket to Suomenlinna (the round-trip ferry sailed all year round, every 40 minutes for the ferry). Twenty minutes later, I was placed in Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This archipelago base was built in the mid-18th century (when Finland was part of Sweden), with six small islands and a number of different themed museums. With friends, follow the Finns' rhythm and sneak around while you don't have to worry about time. The last ferry will return to the city from the island very late.
There are many cannons of Russian rule during the vicinity of the King's Gate in Suomenlinna. Those cannons can be said to be the symbol of Suomenlinna, and they are still kept on the sandbank, and the cannons are so large that they can put their heads in. There are no tickets for Suomenlinna unless you want to visit the six museums on the island. Tickets are only purchased separately when visiting a museum. In the summer, you can also purchase a coupon for these six museums, valid for the entire summer (May 1 to September 30).
Suomenlinna, located on the inner side of the Gulf of Helsinki, was once a military fortress and was listed by UNESCO on the World Heritage List in 1991. Although it is a famous military fortress in Finland, you can see the various fortifications left by the army at the time, but there are still many residents living on the island. This is a very interesting thing, the military atmosphere here is not so strong, on the contrary, because the Nordic Art Center is located here, artists prefer to do some creation on the island.
