“A must go in Helsinki”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Spend a half day there at the beautiful island! I suggest to have a Helsinki card with you which include a free trip to and from the island. Near the pier is an open market selling food and souvenir.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

If you buy a one-day (or more) public travel ticket (€8 each) then it includes the public ferry (15 mins from the main market square) to visit this fortress and still inhabited island. It was a good place to walk around and see the historic nature of the island and it's military usages. Lots of local visitors were there and also 2 wedding parties which was interesting in itself. Enjoyed the dry-dock and also the King's Gate with the massive cannons en-route.
