Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous territory under Finnish sovereignty.

Pack the 12th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Smart Park. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Kastelholm Castle, steep yourself in history at Salis Batteri, have fun and explore at The Cultural History Museum of Aland, and relax and rejuvenate at Badhuset Mariebad.

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.
