Suomenlinna pt.1 – fortress, tunnels and sea

Suomen : gen. from Suomi (Finland) linna: castle, fort = Castle or Fort of Finland

But Suomenlinna… it’s a fortress and a group of islands front of Helsinki city centre.About 20 mins by commuter ferry. We have also castles in Finland, situated in cities of Hämeenlinna and Turku

When I was a child Suomenlinna was all about the tunnels of the fortress.

… And when I grew up… It’s all about the sea.

And seen Helsinki from distance or in distance?
