Fateful Svensksund

The Fateful Svensksund exhibition provides an unforeseen look at the most significant sea battle ever fought on the Baltic Sea, just outside Kotka, and the fortress city that was built after the battle. The thousands of soldiers who sunk to the bottom of the ocean, the well-preserved wrecks and the thriving sea fortress – the human fates of the 1790s come alive. Forgotten stories float to the surface and are reflected in the modern day.
