Friday 5 May

  • Boattrip to Suomenlinna Sea Fortress starting at 18.15 including guided tour and buffet dinner. Price €45 (including drinks).

    Suomenlinna is a major monument of military architecture. The construction of the sea fortress on the islands just off Helsinki in the middle of the 18th century was the most extensive building project during Swedish rule. When it was complete, its military shipyard was one of the biggest dry docks in the world and centres of know-how at that time. At the end of Swedish rule the fortress was being compared with the maritime fortifications at Gibraltar.

    The 250-year-old fortress is included in the UNESCO's World Heritage List.
