  • It is a simple lust church, on the hills of Fort Finland, quietly as a small church for the inhabitants of the island. In addition to worshipping time, it is not long to open to visitors.

  • We walked through Suomenlinna Island. I was impressed by the local church, which is a small and simple building that attracts the faith of the island.

  • Beautiful and simple church that functions as a light house too. The evening clock is played by on 🎺 every evening at 9 o'clock during July (and parts of June and August) in all wind directions. This brings out a special atmosphere over the fortress for the start of the night though it will still be long time before it gets dark, if it even gets dark!
  • The Suomenlinna Church was built as a Russian Orthodox garrison church in 1854. The original building had five steeples with onion domes. The appearance of the church – which dominates the southern view from Helsinki – was changed at the beginning of the Finnish era, when it was converted into an Evangelical-Lutheran church. In the alteration works, the main dome lost its onion shape and, outwardly, the tower was made quadrangular. The bases of the small domes were left under the roof. The walls were plastered to form an even surface.
