Was really too hot the day we were there to explore much but we could see all the old bits of walls standing in the field. Not much else

Ruins of the fortress which was destroyed 1854 during Crimean war by Franco-British naval force. The fortress was only partly build up when it was destroyed. You can spend hours here if you like to walk through the whole area.

Mostly ruins. Quite a walk to see them all so go by car unless you want to walk up the hills. The exhibition is at Prästö beyound the small bridge.

This area is pretty nice to discover, but that requires you to go through the nature trail going around the area. There are interesting information boards along the way telling about the area's history. Nice landscapes, varying terrain and some old ruins to be seen....More

The Bomarsund fortress spans a large area and requires quite a bit of walking. But, if the weather is nice then it is really a nice experience.

These ruined forts are fascinating to see and to imagine the massive structure when it was finished and standing. Up the road (about a 1km walk that is not on the flat) you can find Notvikstornet fort.
