  • There was a huge naval bombardment of this Russian fort during the Crimean War. Whatever was left was blown up with huge amounts of gunpowder, leaving few clues behind. Some of the structures have been partially reconstructed to give the visitor a sense of the immense scale of this installation. It is set in a beautiful place and is worth a visit! There is good bus service from Mariehamn and there is a cafe nearby for refreshments.
  • Not much left of the fortress but an interesting info plaque and a stunning scenery. Has a kiosk and a café nearby.
  • interesting with many scenic views. Puttes camping next to it is great! The bathrooms and kitchen is old but everything is functional.
  • Its hard to imagine the greatness of this building. Awesome place 😊
  • Historically significant. Near a camping place
