The Svartholma Sea Fortress as seen from the sea – from a Distance. And if you look closely you can see there is also the moon hanging above the fortress island.
A view to the ‘backside’ of the Svartholma Sea Fortress. In this photo you can see the fortress walls – and two boats parked near the main harbor of the island.

No wind – the lake lies quiet, surronded by woods. The sun sets – and the sunset is mirrored in the lake. And when the sun sets in Finland, it often sets for quite a long time. In the north sunsets can go on for hours and hours – especially around midsummer you can basically enjoy a colorful sunset almost for half the night.
On a day without almost any wind the lake is mirroring the passing clouds nearly perfectly. In the center of the photo you can see the small island a bunch of seagulls fights for every other day. The island seems to be quite a popular spot for the night – a safe place where basically no enemy can come close without prior notice.
Hanko is one of the few places in Finland where you can actually hang on a proper beach. In the center of this Panorama picture you can see parts of the Port of Hanko where rather large ships load and unload goods basically all day and all of the night.
So while people are working nearby basically 24/7 you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon starring at the open sea, watching ships come and go every now and then, maneuvering between the small islands you see near the Port of Hanko.
