Through the ice


The Port of Helsinki in Finland is almost every winter icebound.

The cruise ships and ferries entering the port will pass the Fortress of Suomenlinna  through the fractured ice via narrow Kustaanmiekka strait which leaves no extra space for big ships.

Remember the passport control, if you are sailing under foreign flag.

The fortress has a beautiful star-shape which is clearly visible only from the see and and  at the deck of a big ship.
