Mariehamn

Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous territory under Finnish sovereignty. Venture out of the city with trips to Bomarsund (in Sund), Getabergen (in Geta) and Eckero (Eckerö Post & tullhus, Aland Hunting & Fishing Museum, &more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Museumship Pommern, steep yourself in history at Salis Batteri, relax and rejuvenate at Badhuset Mariebad, and walk around Lilla holmen.

There are many things that distinguish the autonomous Aland Islands from the rest of Finland, including the fact that they have their own parliament, issue their own stamps, and speak Swedish as the official language. The archipelago, situated in the Gulf of Bothnia, includes over 6,000 islands, of which about 80 are inhabited. Many of the area's dining and accommodation options can be found on the picturesque main island, where 90 percent of the population resides. Natural beauty and an assortment of historical buildings make the islands an attractive holiday option. With a very flat landscape, cycling is one of the most popular, efficient, and enjoyable ways to get around. Regular ferries hop between the isles.
