Mariehamn was named after Marie Alexandrovna, the Empress consort of Alexander II of Russia. Founded in 1861, the city is located on a peninsula and is known as the “town of a thousand linden trees”.
Åland and Mariehamn have a reputable heritage in shipping. The Flying P-Liner Pommern museum ship is anchored in the Western Harbour.
