Listen to the onboard commentary to learn fun facts and trivia about this top Helsinki attraction; built in the mid-18th century, the maritime fortress was created as a principal military base for Sweden during the Russo-Swedish War.

Order a drink from the onboard bar (own expense), and relax while gliding past Deger Canal, one of the citys iconic waterways. Look out for Helsinkis impressive fleet of icebreaker ships, which help keep most of Finlands ports open throughout the bitter winters, and hear tales of the citys history. Founded as an important hub for Baltic Sea trade in the 16th century, Helsinki was later conquered by Russia before becoming the independent city as it stands today.
