Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is a must see for anyone who visits Helsinki. Skip the costly tourist boats and use the HSL (Helsinki public transport) boat instead. You can buy tickets at the dock. It departs from Kauppatori, close to the Allas Sea Pool.

Old military fortress is even older than Helsinki City itself and you can go there by a ferry. It is very beautiful place for a day trip!

The ferry to Suomenlinna leaves from Market Square and it takes 20 minutes one way and the ticket price is 5€. The Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is a UNESCO world heritage place. It is an island so dress warm. There are in total 6 little museums and restaurants. Enjoy.

Old fortress island - one of Helsinki's most important historic sites. Built mostly in 1748, it is an island built to defend Helsinki against invadors. A must visit, especially on summer. Ferry goes from Kauppatori and can be boarded with a basic HSL ticket.
