Lonna is a small island and part of Suomenlinna fortress area. Lonna is situated between Market square and Suomenlinna and it takes only seven minutes to get there from the city. Lonna was once a base for storing and clearing mines, but now the island is a refuge where visitors can leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind them.
There is a restaurant, coffee shop and bar and public sauna in Lonna. The mine storehouses are rented as banquet- and conference facilities. Many events are organized in Lonna during summer. Read more about Lonna’s services.
