Do you associate Suomenlinna with summer and sunshine? Well, you can forget the sunscreen this time. Join the Dreadful Suomenlinna -tour and the sun no longer shines. The Dreadful Suomenlinna -tour is based on historical facts and figures, and it focuses on the dark side of the human life.

In the past, those who had done wrong often ended up serving time in the fortress. Some of these men were (in)famous at the time, some of them less so. The fortress has witnessed all sorts. In the 1700s and 1800s, in the margins of the fortress community lived also women, who had fallen through the cracks and ended up in equally infamous professions. The tour also discusses lethal agents invisible to the eye: diseases.

Dreadful Suomenlinna is a tour for the evening time and it is suitable for adults over 18 years. Flashlights are recommended. Duration 1,5 hours.

Price: Groups max. 35 persons, 360  €
