Suomenlinna Island & Fortress, Helsinki: 117 reviews and 257 photos

Ok, well you may not need the whole day to explore Suomenlinna, it would only take an hour or two to walk around the islands. But on a nice sunny day, why not take your time and spend the afternoon there.

In the summer you can go on one of the guided walking tours (available in Finnish, Swedish and English) that last for an hour. I would highly recommend this as a great way to learn more about the island and its history. Just go to the visitor centre and pay for your ticket there (Adult 6?, Children 3?).

Besides the guided tour there are also several museums on the island and exhibitions of arts and craft.

For more information check out my Suomenlinna travelogue.
