Suomenlinna Island, Finland

There are seven World Heritage sites in Finland (6 cultural, 1 natural). Their importance supersedes the category of national treasures. World Heritage sites constitute the common heritage of all humanity. Suomenlinna is "an outstanding example of general fortification principles of the 17th and 18th centuries," but it is also a recreational playground for Helsinki. [2005]
