Safety instructions

Use extra caution when moving around in the fortress. Suomenlinna has less streetlights than other parts of the city, and most of the roads are made of uneven cobblestones. Please pay attention to where you are stepping and wear good shoes!

In Suomenlinna the fortification structures, walls and ramparts can be kilometres long and are for the most part unfenced and non-illuminated. Falling hazards can be found in very surprising places. Move with extra caution and supervise children at all times.

Currently there are many renovation projects ongoing in Suomenlinna and worksites can be found also on the main routes. Entry to the worksites and other closed areas is forbidden because of safety reasons.

Thank you for following the guidelines! You can read more about safety while visiting from Suomenlinna’s website.
